Overview:

 

The well-being of our visitors, staff and volunteers is always the first priority for the National Trust of South Australia, and we take great care to ensure our sites are safe, clean, and fun spaces for all. In consideration of recent news related to the coronavirus (COVID-19), we have decided to temporarily cancel all tours until Tuesday 31 March 2020.

 

Neither prison nor hospital, the “criminal ward” of the former Glenside Mental Hospital occupies a unique place in South Australia’s history. From the rare ‘Ha Ha Wall’ encircling the building to its striking 1880s polychromatic brickwork, explore the breathtaking architecture and sobering history of this important site.
