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

  • Well done centre showing a harrowing bit of our history. The individual stories and the physical descriptions of the inmates brings a human touch. Dad that so much has been destroyed post prison closure but a great job to reconstruct it. It’s also on the route to the Cascade Brewery and is easily walkable from town.

  • It is old historic site. If you like history and old, rundown place, you will like the place. I personally don't like it is worth to go so fast just to see this place. Need to pay A$8

  • A histrionic site done simple and well, the design allows for the stories of the people to shine through. Flo did a fantastic job of guiding our Historic Tour. It would be great if they had the re-enactment tour's in the afternoon also.

  • A world heritage site laid with many history of female convicts. It is not that much big as port arthur. No such buildings. Some structure of destroyed buildings can be seen there.

  • Very good. Informative. Interesting for tourists. A bit expensive.
