Mad Landscapes Matter – Walking Tour in Callan Park

Join us for a walking tour of Callan Park and briefly into Broughton Hall.

Hear how the Medical Superintendent of Gladesville Hospital and a truly visionary architect came together to develop the Callan Park Estate and its most perfect block of buildings as a place of asylum. Buildings now stand empty but hear the voices and stories of people who worked, lived and sought psychiatric care here. And learn about the campaign to “save” Callan Park and the plans for the future of the site.
