Buildings Speak for Themselves

” Architecture is a visual art, and the buildings speak for themselves’ – Julia Morgan 

 

Established in 1838, Tarban Creek Lunatic Asylum known today as the Gladesville Hospital, housed people with mental and/or emotional problems within the area and surrounding suburbs.

Gladesville Hospital began its purpose – built asylum in the 1830’s on the banks of the Paramatta River and after completion, patients from Liverpool Hospital and the Female Factory (Paramatta) were then transferred to Gladesville Hospital.

Nowadays, Gladesville ‘purpose-built asylum’ hospital sits abandoned and derelict while emitting a creepy as anything type vibe. Totally recommend heading out there … only during the day!
