To protect, to rehabilitate and to serve

Acacia Prison


Bookings for social visits have now reopened. Health measures, physical distancing and limits to visitor numbers will apply.

Acacia Prison is a privately-managed prison in Western Australia. The prison is owned by the Department of Justice which contracts management of the prison to an external service provider - Serco.

Acacia's open-plan, campus-style design means prisoners can move around within the complex fairly freely. Prisoners use 'smart card' technology to move within the prison, access their bank accounts and buy goods from the canteen.

Acacia's focus is on rehabilitation and it has a number of industries prisoners can work in including metal work and wood work.
