The Aradale Lunatic Asylum is large and very spooky. We had a small group with varying degrees of anxiety and fear. Enjoyed the theatre of it all.

Great night. Tour guide was fantastic. Information given was like he was reading from an encyclopaedia. Fantastic and fun experience in such an eerie atmosphere

I went on the 2 hour tour. There is a lot of stairs and walking. Short beaks so the guide can do their talking. It is also quite dark, only lantern light. I would say it may not be suitable. So I think it would be up to you... More
