Discover ‘Factory Tales’ at the Cascades Female Factory

Our new kid’s activity booklet ‘Factory Tales’ is now available for young visitors to the Cascades Female Factory.

Factory Tales 1

‘Factory Tales’ is a great way for kids to explore the site and learn about the lives of the Female Factory’s convicts as they search for answers and collect stamps.

Highlights of the ‘Factory Tales’ booklet include:

  • A colourful illustration of the original Female Factory site
  • A range of activities to complete at 12 different stations
  • 2 stamps to be collected at different locations
  • Stories and images of people, places and objects associated with the Female Factory

Completed activity booklets will receive a ‘stamp of approval’ featuring a reproduced design from an original ‘Female House of Correction’ seal (as shown below) that was used to secure and authenticate official correspondence.
