Cascades Probation Station, run by the government, opened in 1842. It was in Koonya. Between 1848 and 1855, the Station received boys who had been transported to Tasmania. It closed in 1855.
The Convict Department sent boys to the Cascades Probation Station after Point Puer closed. They felled and sawed timber there.
