A tour of the historic Cascades Female Factory and a couple of beers at Cascade Brewery, Australia’s oldest brewery, top the list of attractions in this southern suburb of Hobart. But visitors willing to wander the streets will enjoy views of some of the most beautiful homes in the city, including the famous Ashleigh and Milton residences, as well as quaint cottages and historic townhouses.
The heritage site, All Saints Anglican Church, is also worth a stop. Afterwards, rent a bicycle and ride the path along the Rivulet, or wander the foothills of Mount Wellington via the trails behind Cascade Brewery, the oldest brewery in Australia.
Cascades Female Factory is an easy walk from South Hobart, and plenty of signage along the Rivulet and Molle Street provide historical details for those passing through.
