Louisa’s Walk is a historic trek through the life of one of Hobart’s female convicts. From London, where Louisa stole a loaf of bread to feed her children, to her life in ‘The Female Factory’, a nice term to describe a women’s prison.

Two actors take on the roles of Louisa and the men that Louisa encounters on her journey to Van Diemen's Land and in the prison. It is a fascinating story, told with humour and compassion, and is a must if you have an interest in history and/or theatre.

The story is enacted along a route in South Hobart that takes you from Cascade Brewery, to the site of the Women’s Factory and back to the brewery for a complimentary beverage.

Tip: take a brolly as it is all outdoors and the weather in Hobart is unpredictable.
