Mayday Hills Hospital | Beechworth Lunatic Asylum
Established in 1867 as one of three major asylums in the state of Victoria, the hospital operated for almost 130 years until its closure in 1995. During this time it grew to incorporate 57 buildings spread across a 200 acre site, at its peak accommodating over 1,200 patients. Close to 9000 patients died on site making this one of Australia’s most haunted locations.
Camera Equipment: Images were taken with the Hasselblad H2D Digital Medium Format camera with 28mm & 50-110mm lens. David used a Hasselblad 500C/M with negative film & 5″X4″ large format camera with polaroid film.
