Wolston Park Luncatic Asylum (Abandoned Wing)

Postby AndrewBAPI » Wed Oct 26, 2011 8:07 am

Now I don't know if any of you have heard of it, but it's located in Wacol in Brisbane. Now I have heard stories of it being haunted. I know that it's near impossible to get an investigation there but my crew are trying so hard to get it. I think it would be amazing!

Heres what it looks like from the outside.

It looks creepy and I imagine it would have fantastic hauntings!

What are your thoughts on it?

Never heard of it, but you're right... it looks creepy! :closet: It's one of those places where you just know there's going to be spirit activity just by looking at it. :scared:

ahhhh this is why I didnt recognise it..the name that is ..
It was originally Woogaroo Lunatic Asylum, it became Goodna Hospital for the Insane, then it was Mental Hospital, Goodna, then it was Brisbane Special Hospital, probably the most euphemistic of all, then it became Wolston Park Hospital and that was from about the 60s, so a lot of people also here know it as Wolly Park, Wolston Park. Now it's called The Park - Centre for Mental Health.

I went there for the first time a few days ago, definitely a creepy place but hard to put a finger on how much, if any, of it has to do with the paranormal. Its a heritage building on federal land and the asylum...sorry, centre for mental health, is still operational on the same grounds, so I was more afraid of a trespassing charge. Also, locals who know the history know it was hell on earth for the people sent there. Experimental drugs and therapies, rape, torture, etc, etc. It's well worth a look but I think the place is just thick with 150 years of human misery more so than any particular apparition.

The first clip is interesting but I got nothing from the second really. Would love to know where they were when they got the reading on the first though. It's weird but am gonna say it's almost like only half the place is haunted.... if the other half IS then they're all just happy being where they are and don't want anyone to know about their 'happy place'.... perhaps thats where they gave out all the awesome drugs! :lol:

I've done a lot of research on this place but it is hard to get much feedback as the government keeps tight-lipped as a lot of families want re-numeration for the mistreatment that apparently went on there. This was the woman's ward, but I can't find a floor-plan anywhere to really figure out what's what. I think it would be interesting if a fairly professional team could be allowed to stage an investigation, but I don't know if it's ever been attempted.
