CASCADE BREWERY AND FEMALE FACTORY

Travel through the scenic South Hobart, stopping along the way for some retail therapy and a coffee at Ginger Brown, before heading up to Cascade Brewery – Australia’s oldest brewery. Jump on a tour, grab a beer and take a stroll through the beautiful Cascade Gardens. Jump back on the bike and pedal the 2 minute ride down to the historic Female Factory. Wander around the site where thousands of women and children were imprisoned when they were transported to Van Diemen’s Land for their crimes and hear their stories. Follow the Hobart Rivulet downstream and enjoy the majestic bush track back along the banks of what was the main source of fresh water for the new settlement of Hobart from the 1860s. The track leads you back to the city for your return.
