ARADALE BEECHWORTH GEELONG
Aradale is Australia's largest abandoned lunatic asylum. Opened in 1867 as Ararat Lunatic Asylum, this building housed tens of thousands of people described as "Lunatics", "idiots" and "imbeciles" - some of them described as the worst lunatics in the British Empire. 

Completed 40 years before Freud, this building saw some of the most controversial psychiatric treatments in Australia. Around 13,000 people passed away here in it's 130 years. As a result, Aradale is considered one of the most haunted locations in Australia. 

At its height, Aradale consisted of 68 buildings and was home to over 2000 patients and staff, making it a self sufficient town. 

And now, for the first time, Aradale's doors have opened for evening explorations. Do you have what it takes to explore one of Australia's eeriest buildings after dark?
