    Situated in the foothills of Kunanyi Mount Wellington, the Cascade Gardens provide a lush, tree shaded area close to the heart of the city.

    This parkland venue has a rich history dating back to the establishment of the Female Factory in 1827, when the gardens were planted to halt development around the site.

    The Cascade Gardens are also closely connected to the Hobart Rivulet, a creek running through the site. An easily accessed area, this venue would provide a perfect backdrop for light installations, promenade theatre, poetry readings, creative community projects.
