Events, Tours & Talks

The Friends:
  • Run Special events. Our annual celebration is the iconic ‘It’s a Riot’ Day. This is a day for members to gather, visitors to explore the site on our tours and descendants to catch up with each other and share information. The day also includes a key note speaker event with well known history identities who share connections to the factory including Babette Smith, Tom and Meg Keneally and Alisdair McGregor
  • Provide booked tours of the Parramatta Female Factory. Our guides specialize in the stories of the women and the place which is the earliest surviving convict women’s site in Australia. Tours for individuals are offered on the first Friday of the month. We also do group bookings by arrangement.  For all bookings email parramattafemalefactoryfriends@gmail.com
  • Talk to community organisations on different topics relating to the Parramatta Female Factory and the Female Factory System as well as related topics
