Female Factory Historic Site - Review
During the years of the conquest and acquisition, Hobart was where the convicts were sent. Like the Penitentiary Chapel was a place for the convicted men, the Female Factory was where all the women were sent, until they gained some employment or either got married off. Whilst they were there, the female convicts were engaged in household chores such as washing, spinning and sewing. During the Female Factory’s operational years, there were over a 1000 inmates including a few children of the convicts. Although not much of the original premises remains, the site is still an important part of the nation’s history; the best way to see it is through a guided tour! Also, visit the popular attractions in the city by following Hobart itinerary 3 days.

Female Factory Historic Site, Hobart Reviews
The guided tour was great - our guide was very knowledgeable and enthusiastic. She was also happy to answer any questions we had. I highly recommend the tour, as it provides a lot of historical information on the Factory, and paints an accurate picture of what life would have been like for the incarcerated women. "Her Story" was fantastic. It adds an emotional layer to the history of the Factory. I recommend both tours.
Informative and authentic. its more of a ruin and you'll need to bring your imagination to fill in all the gaps. The stories and your guides will help you get there. The guides really care about the history.
A great site to visit on it's own, but take the tour of the site. The guide was very informative and gave a lot more information on the history of the site.
Very sad. Also felt that as I had paid for a tour there I should've been able to see it all but was prevented from seeing some of it (The matrons home) and nothing was explained. Something that looked like original footings in front of the reception area was not signed. So whatever it was remains a mystery to me. Some signage saying what the rooms once were was good but I would have liked more information.
Did the guided tour with Shelley and found her to be extremely knowledgeable. She made my visit very enjoyable and highly recommend visiting this historic site when in Hobart.
