Welcome to Louisa's Walk

Louisa's Walk

Tasmania's premier tourist attraction, Louisa's Walk is a 'live history show', that tells the heartbreaking story of an Irish woman, Louisa Regan, who was sent to Australia in 1841 as a convict, on a seven-year sentence for stealing a loaf of bread. This piece of 'strolling theatre' - thoroughly researched, appropriately narrated, and well-acted - takes the audience through the historic areas of Hobart, before ending up at the climactic location of the Cascade Female Factory, an infamous prison workhouse. The purpose of the show is to fascinate, inform and challenge audiences - to allow them to experience, through the medium of theatre, the chilling origins of Australia's settler history. Referred to time and again as the one thing everybody should see while in Hobart, Louisa's Walk is an educational experience that holds the affective power of theatre, and should not be missed.
