Go to the women's goal at noon and they have a new tour. For a large group they will do Louisa's Walk. I have done it before and it was fantastic, so if your group is large, then organise it in advanceMore

Previously titled 'Louisa's Walk', 'Her Story' is a compelling and well scripted drama of the life of convict women who arrived at the 'women's factory'. As you follow the drama you become immersed in the story and emotionally connected to 'Louisa' as she includes the...More
