You must take the tours! We did the guided tour at 11 followed by the actors at 12. Absolutely wonderful.

This is a great place to visit, make sure you take in the guided tour and Mary's story it is well with it. You can do a self guided tour, but you'll get a better experience paying for the tours.

Well worth a visit to have a greater understanding of the life of a female convict. John our guide was fantastic and so great at explaning the history. He had so much information. The guided tour is a must. Totally recommended.

Spent the morning to early afternoon going to Mt Wellington and then to the Cascades Female Factory. Interesting history lesson worth the $15 for the tour. The design of the place to represent and understand what it used to be was amazing given it the inner walls no longer exist. Wish that history would have stayed, but an imagination can make it even more interesting with some great story telling by the guide.

We did the historic tour. Well worth the $15 dollars as it helps build a better understanding of what is actually left of the factory. The guide was friendly, well informed and knew how to build a good story. Great history lesson.
