Beechworth Asylum, originally known as Mayday Hills Lunatic Asylum, was one of the largest psychiatric hospitals in Victoria.
Opened in 1867, this building housed thousands of people described as "Lunatics", "idiots" and "imbeciles".
Closing in 1995 after 128 years of operation, today this site is considered one of the most haunted locations in Australia.
At its height, Mayday Hills consisted of 67 buildings and was home to over 1200 patients and 500 staff.
Beechworth Ghost Tours will lead you through the cold and deserted buildings of this once notorious and feared institution.
