CASCADES FEMALE FACTORY
Beneath the shadow of Mount Wellington, the UNESCO World Heritage-listed Cascades Female Factory is the best place to connect with the lesser known stories of Australia’s female convicts. From 1828–1853 thousands of women and children were imprisoned here; many never left. Joining a guided tour brings the stories of this challenging but very special place to life. Our Heritage Tour runs each hour and reveals stories of the women and the punishment system to which they endured and railed against. Even more emotional is the dramatised tour Her Story. Site entry fees apply with all proceeds helping to fund the ongoing conservation of the site.
Open 9.30am–4pm daily
