Willow Court Asylum is Australia's oldest continually run mental asylum and pre-dates Port Arthur. It is located at New Norfolk which is approximately 34 km from Hobart.
Step back in time as you enter these haunted buildings for your two-hour experience with access to some of the latest paranormal equipment while documenting any unconfirmed or unexplained ghostly apparitions, voices or footsteps heard from the unknown while exploring parts of this very haunted facility very rarely open to the public.
This tour is for those who have been on a ghost tour but want to experience the darker side of the Asylum.
This is not a history tour. It is a paranormal experience.
Each tour has a limited number of spaces due to the current COVID-19 restrictions and will be held in either the Ladies Cottage (J Ward), the Criminally Insane Female Ward (Ward A) or the Criminally Insane Male Ward (Ward C), so to avoid disappointment, secure your tickets now!

The Willow Court Asylum is standing history. And the wonderful tour guides were more than keen to share their vast knowledge. A memorable night not to be missed. I look forward to a return trip Asap!
