I took this image back in 2008 during a 4WD excursion to this tragic site at Morriset in NSW Australia. Like most of Australia’s lunatic asylums this one too has been abandoned and vandalised. Was it to shut out the memory of what took place in these buildings or was it ignorance at the historic significance these facilities had in the history of our country. Regardless, it is a fascinating place to visit but do it soon as it won’t be long before it is raised to the ground completely – nature has already begun to invade the ruins. Do not mistake this site for the Morriset Hospital on the shores of Lake Macquarie not too far from this one.
