Nice Day in New Norfolk

New Norfolk is a lovely town 40 minutes upsteam on the Derwent River from Hobart. Autumn is the loveliest time to visit.

Poplars are very popular here.

New Norfolk has a precinct called Willow Court which was an old insane asylum. Information about it can be found here and here. This large soldier was standing guard in a window of the administration block.

I wonder if this bus was used to take inmates out on excursions.

This is a door that was probably used in one of the cells. It was about 10cm thick.

Part of an old wagon wheel.

I spotted this hanging in one of the windows.
Someone has left their mark, perhaps about the way the people were treated here.
