Attraction details
Owner description: Louisa's Walk is a piece of Strolling Theatre or Walking Play that takes you on a journey into the life of Louisa Ragan, an Irish convict, sent to Van Diemen's Land on a seven year sentence, in 1841, for stealing a loaf of bread. You walk with the actors as they tell Louisa's story. You will meet Louisa outside the famous Cascade Brewery building in South Hobart. You will walk through the beautiful Cascade Gardens along to the World Heritage listed Cascades Female Factory Historic Site where Louisa was imprisoned. Once you enter those locked gates, they are shut behind you and you experience life in this harsh prison. You may laugh and you may cry but you will remember Louisa's story!

If you want to experience and hear the stories for 18 century I highly recommend this tour. The story makes you feel like your in her world and it makes you laugh and cry. The actors are amazing and it takes you o the female factory and you can see and hear the tales at hand. Very enjoyable

Judith and Chris are a talented, friendly, knowledgble couple who really bring the story of Louisa Regan to life..

We absolutely loved the tour and the performance and learned so much about the typical life of a convict in the mid 19th century..

This is an absolute must if you are in Hobart and great value for money at only $35.

i would suggest booking this tour in advance so that you dont miss out. It is a wonderful dramatised tour done by a husband and wife team, which makes history highly entertaining and memorable.

this lovely walk is a wonderful thing to do for all ages. As locals wanting to do something on a cold crisp winter afternoon we took the walk with 3 generations in our little group. It was a lovely, informative and very well presented 'history' lesson - would highly recommenced

My partner & I decided to go to Louisa's Walk based on the reviews on trip advisor & were not disappointed! Entertaining yet informative & holds your attention the whole time. We had lunch at the brewery first so was an excellent afternoon. For those looking for a full days entertainment perhaps do the brewery tour, lunch at the brewery then Louisa's walk... An excellent way to experience Hobart!
