Casuarina Prison

Latest news - Prison social visits suspended


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

Casuarina Prison is the main maximum-security prison for male prisoners - particularly long-term prisoners - in Western Australia. Surrounded by a range of state-of-the-art security devices, the prison has a special unit for intensive, high-security supervision of offenders.

The prison operates the State's biggest infirmary which is about the same size as a small country hospital.

It also has a variety of workshops where prisoners can learn metal fabrication, cabinet making, boot and shoe manufacturing, printing, baking and making concrete products.
