Built in 1904 this, now abandoned, hospital for the mentally ill was once Western Australia’s largest. Most of the buildings that once took up almost 3 hectares have been demolished as the hospital was closed in 1983 with parts of it sold and subdivided. What buildings remain are heritage listed and the building decays as plans for the buildings possible future reopening remains slow moving.

Please enjoy the adventures of Norman and myself as we explore the hidden treasure that lies camouflaged in-between beautiful, three story houses that surround.

I ventured into the unknown with my Nikon D700 and 14 – 24mm and 24-70mm Nikkor lenses. I mostly used the 14-24mm to get a really wide shot of all the rooms.
