Listen to Mystifying Melbourne – 12 November 2021
Operational from 1872 - 1988 Kew Asylum was the largest mental institution built in Victoria. There were grandiose plans of it being a haven for patients; Beautiful gardens and magnificent buildings on the stunning grounds near Yarra Bend Park. It looked pretty from the outside, but there was the stark reality of overcrowding, poor sanitation, and patient abuse on the inside.
Now, it’s Wilsmere estate, a private gated community of luxury apartments.
