Cascades Female Factory

For a different side to the convict story, visit the Cascades Female Factory to learn about the tragic plight of Australia’s convict women. The Heritage Tour, offered five times per day, takes visitors to the workhouse's hospital, kitchen, nursery, solitary-confinement cells, chapel and matron’s cottage. Along the way, the guide weaves in moving stories about the women's lives and such events as an 1829 food riot. "Her Story," a dramatic guided tour with two actors who bring the tales to life, starts at noon.
