I did a recent trip to Victoria and visited the historic Beechworth Mayday Hills Lunatic Asylum.
The buildings and grounds are incredible, and I could not put my camera down.
One window was ajar, and when I opened it to look inside, a bitter cold gust of air came out and hit me in the face! Creepy and intriguing!
Beechworth Lunatic Asylum, originally known as the haunted Mayday Hills Lunatic Asylum is a decommissioned hospital located in Beechworth, a town of Victoria, Australia. Mayday Hills Lunatic Asylum was the fourth such Hospital to be built in Victoria, being one of the three largest. Mayday Hills Hospital closed in 1995 after 128 years of operation.
The asylum was surrounded by almost 106 hectares of farmland, making the hospital self-sufficient with its own piggery, orchards, kitchen gardens, fields, stables and barn. For recreation, the asylum included tennis courts, an oval and cricket pavilion, kiosk and theatre.
