Peter Colthorpe, from Friends of Gladesville Hospital, led Hunters Hill Trust’s May walk.  He took 30 people through the site and introduced the main heritage buildings in the old asylum area, the foreshore and the cemetery.

Gladesville Hospital, originally known as Tarban Creek Lunatic Asylum, was designed by the Colonial Architect, Mortimer Lewis.  The site contains many buildings that are listed on the Register of the National Estate.
