Adelaide Tours - Z Ward: Behind the Walls

Description

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.


Duration: Approximately 75 minutes
Please note Z Ward’s upper level is accessible by stairs only

 

Our last tour date for 2019 is Sunday 15 December.
