Sunbury Historical Tours have researched and sourced relevant & factual information on this former mental hospital with the aim to inform, educate and entertain the general public with a fascinating guided walking tour experience unlike no other, that will foster a greater understanding and appreciation for this particular area of our town's local history.
We hope to promote sympathy, compassion and a greater awareness for the ways in which we as a society, have treated and accepted those who have been diagnosed with having some form of mental illness, and also enable us to reflect on the advances that have since been made with the pioneering and introduction of more effective medications, that have led to better health results for patients, and the gradual discontinuation away from those less inhumane treatments of our past.
