(In the vicinity of the present-day Parramatta Riverside Theatres). From its humble inception, the Factory was intended to be a place where unassigned female convicts were gainfully employed in tasks that were beneficial to the colony, where their basic need for shelter was provided and where ‘corrupting influences’ could be kept at b­­­ay.The World Heritage-listed Cascades Female Factory tells the story of the displacement, mistreatment and forced migration of convict women and girls, and their contribution to colonisation throughout the history of colonial Australia to the present day.
