The World Heritage-listed Cascades Female Factory Historic Site in South Hobart is Australia

From 1828 to 1856, the Cascades Female Factory operated as a purpose-built institution intended to reform female convicts. More than 5,000 women convicts are known to have spent time here.

The Cascades Female Factory was originally established on the site of a failed rum distillery which was adapted and gradually expanded to comprise five conjoined, rectangular walled yards.

After 1856, the site was used for a variety of institutional purposes before being sold in 1904 and subdivided."

The Cascade Brewery, the oldest brewery in Australia, is located here.

Another landmark is All Saints Anglican Church. Established in 1858, it is heritage listed. The building was designed by the prominent architect Henry Hunter.

The church is also renowned for containing a memorial plaque for school teacher and founder of women's cricket in Australia, Lily Poulett-Harris.

South Hobart is also famous for its Keen's Curry sign. This was created when the son-in-law of the company's founder "purchased land in the foothills of Mount Wellington, overlooking Hobart, and in 1905 transformed it into a large advertising sign. Heavy stones were collected from the site, painted white and used to form the words 'Keen's Curry' in letters some fifty feet high. Public uproar resulted, but Horace won the right to use it as an advertising sign. In June 1926 the familiar landmark briefly changed to read 'Hell's Curse' as a university prank, and students altered it again in 1962 to promote a theatre production. In 1994 the landmark read 'No Cable Car' as a protest against a proposed development. After every change the sign was restored and as of 2012 was still in place."

The area is known for its high green vote which is reflected by the existence of a community sustainability network. This is coordinated through a community.
