While the sun shines, Geoff and his team from Asylum Ghost Tours, will share their knowledge of the historic buildings of the former Mayday Hills Lunatic Asylum. You’ll hear stories of the building, the opening of the facility, the many patients we still know about, and the final years of the Lion of Beechworth, as the asylum was known. This experience encompasses memories, local tales, urban myths, and stories of the patients and the treatments they suffered.
