The only way to describe today the former Greenvale Sanatorium is spooky!
The former Greenvale tuberculosis sanatorium was opened in May 1905 as the first purpose-built public tuberculosis institution in Victoria. It was particularly important in providing for sufferers in 'reduced circumstances,' whose nutritional and living conditions made them particularly prone to this highly contagious, deadly and much-feared disease which was known colloquially as the 'white death'.
Greenvale Sanitorium or as it was later known North West Hospital remained hidden in bushland along a dirt road near Melbourne airport after its closure. It was later demolished for expansion of 'Woodlands Historic Park'.
