Day 2

Mt Wellington, Female Factory, Cascade Brewery
The tour of the city this morning starts at sea level and will culminate at 1271m above it, on top of Mt Wellington. On the return journey experience a tour of the Cascade Female Factory. This was purpose built in 1828 and operated for the next 30 years, the intention being to remodel female convicts away from the temptation of society. Two centuries later and this site is World Heritage Listed and offers insight into the early days of Van Diemen’s Land. Close by is the Cascade Brewery, where we will enjoy lunch followed by a tour of the brewery, located on three acres of heritage Woodstock gardens. Next,
take an afternoon tour on the eastern side of the Derwent River, including the Bellerive Cricket Ground. Tonight enjoy the buffet at Wrest Point Casino.

Visit the museum where much of this history is recorded. Take in the superb coastal scenery along Adventure Bay where white wallabies, echidnas and birds may be seen.
