South Hobart, the Hobart Rivulet and Cascade Brewery are closely linked. In 1825 Peter Degraves opened Australia's first water-powered sawmill near Cascades, named because of the small waterfalls caused by the rushing Hobart Rivulet. Degraves established the Brewery and Malt House in 1832. Wealthy settlers and prosperous merchants built houses in the area. Convicts were also housed here. Today with a modern fudge factory and charming gardens, it presents a different scene.
