Abandoned Mental Asylum?

Postby malificentmuse on Sun Nov 28, 2010 5:29 am

Hey guys,

Been searching around for ages but apparently there's a mental asylum thats abadoned somewhere in Sydney? Ive seen a couple of photographers works from there but theyre all keeping very hush hush about it :( Searching online has also proven to be fruitless thus far, would anyone happen to know anything about it? Im struggling to find new locations and it would be greatly appreciated :)

I do know where it is, but can't share unfortunately as that would be greeted with instant exile... :-)

Sometimes, locations are worth keeping secret and preserving, coz otherwise they'd be covered in grafitti within weeks and are rendered unusable...
Cheers, John
