Beechworth Ghost Tours (get a group of friends together and have a ball here)

Beechworth is known for its amazing stories and rich colonial history. Join our local guide to lead you on the Beechworth Ghost Tour
through the halls and secrets of the former Mayday Hills Lunatic Asylum in the grounds of La Trobe University at Beechworth.

As the dusk settles overlooking the township of Beechworth you will be led through the distant and deserted buildings of what once was
one of the three major asylums in Victoria. 'The Beechworth Lunatic Asylum' as it was originally named was built during the height of
Beechworth's gold rush period in 1867 and operated until it's closure in 1995.

You will go deep into the heart of the old hospital and experience the rooms and their mysteries that have been been sealed for over 30 years.
Hear the stories, tales and myths that have led to this amazing tour and discover what life was like living and working in the institution during the 1860's.

This tour is more than just a 'Ghost Tour', but then again... will you see something during your tour?
