Sold: Mayday Hills buyers want ideas | The Border Mail

Another ‘haunted’ and historical landmark under the hammer.


Mayday Hills Asylum

“BEECHWORTH’S historic Mayday Hills site has been sold by La Trobe University to Border developers for $1.5 million.

Wooragee’s Geoff and Tess Lucas and Beechworth’s George and Sue Fendyk were yesterday announced as the new owners of the 106.5-hectare site after a drawn-out sale process.

Mr Lucas, a manufacturer of portable saw mills, said they had no set plan to rejuvenate the former Mayday Hills asylum.

Instead they would ask the community for “great ideas” for its future at a meeting at The Pines at the old La Trobe campus at 7pm on Wednesday, March 20.

The couples will seek other investors to help develop the site with Mr Lucas suggesting a hotel as a possibility.”
