TripAdvisor’s No. 1 Hobart attraction: Louisa’s Walk

Shared by

Take a journey back in time to Hobart in the 1800s with the award-winning strolling theatre experience, Louisa's Walk.

Set in the heart of Tasmania's historic capital city, you will learn about the life of Irish convict Louisa Regan, who was sent to Van Diemen's Land in 1841 to serve a seven year sentence for stealing a loaf of bread.

The walk is set in and around the World Heritage-listed Cascades Female Factory, where women were incarcerated with up to 1,000 other people including guards, nurses and babies living there at any one time.

Louisa will tell her harrowing story about her arrest, conviction and transportation to the island for what would now be considered a petty crime.

Louisa's walk will "challenge, entertain and inform you", so make sure to book your journey!

Performances are at 14:00 daily, with special performance times available for groups of ten or more.

Tickets for adults are $35, $90 for a family (parents plus up to four children aged five to 18), with children under five free.

You can book your walk online now, purchase a gift voucher or contact Judith or Chris Cornish on +61 3 6229 8959 or mobile 0437 276 417.
