From 1828 to 1856 approximately 7,000 convict women spent time at the Cascades Female Factory, each with their own story to tell. Over a period of 40 minutes, our guided tour gives visitors a comprehensive introduction to the site and the women who were imprisoned there. Offered several times each day, this tour will provide insights into the history of the Female Factory, the convict system of punishment and reform, and offer a glimpse of what convict life was like for the thousands of women transported to Van Diemen’s Land.
Our Convict Women’s Tours depart every day at 10:00am, 11:00am, 1:00pm, 2:00pm and 3:00pm
