Her Story

This exciting and dramatic visitor experience at the Cascades Female Factory Historic Site brings to life the extraordinary story of the convict women and their children who were incarcerated at the World Heritage-listed site.

Part history lesson, part roaming theatre show, Her Story is a powerful depiction of the harsh life within Yard One of the Female Factory in 1833.

Performed by two actors, one portraying the woman whose story is being told, and the other playing the parts of an overseer and a doctor, Her Story helps visitors to fully comprehend the significance of the Site and what happened here.

Women were incarcerated at the Female Factory as punishment, to be reformed, or while waiting to be assigned as servants to free settlers.

Her Story is performed daily at 12pm at the Cascades Female Factory.

Duration approximately 45 minutes.
