The Cascades Female Factory was a name given to a prison which was built in 1828 and operated for approximately 28 years. The site was previously a distillery and today it comprises five yards, a cemetery and several structures. More than 5,000 female convicts were believed to have been confined in this prison which saw a high mortality rate because of poor sanitation and health-care facilities. Today, the site is listed as an Australian heritage site and is preserved and open to public tours. The site also comprises a shop where you can buy books and other souvenir items. Call or visit their website for information about tours.
