A contrasting tour of breath-taking scenery with views from kunanyi/Mt Wellington to the harsh stories of life as a female convict inside the Female Factory. On this fully escorted tour of Mt Wellington we pass through various eco systems and experience the harsh alpine environment to the summit where on a clear day the views are stunning. What ever the weather take the opportunity to visit Iconic Mt Wellington - the traditional indigenous name in Palawa Kani language is kunanyi. Enjoy a short walk on the Exhibition Garden circuit at The Springs. On arrival at the Cascades Female Factory visit the interpretation centre and your self guided audio experience to learn about the lives of the Female Convicts once imprisoned here.
