THE YARRA BEND ASYLUM. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News for Home Readers — 23 May 1868

THE YARRA BEND ASYLUM. The Asylum for the Insane at Yarra Bend, about three miles from Melbourne, is the only institution of its kind in the colony of Victoria. It is situated on rather low ground, on the north bank of tho Yarra, the tortuous windings of the river nearly surrounding it. The prospect presented to the spectator from the elevation in Studley Park, on the opposite bank of the river, is perhaps the most attrac- tive to be found in the neighborhood of the metropolis. The sward is peculiarly verdant for Australian turf, and the wood, whose foliage knows no decay, is beautifully varied by the fantastic windings of the stream, and here and there a patch of agricultural land. Seen in the distance, but from this same stand- point, the Asylum below, with its picturesque looking little buildings, at straggling inter- vals, presents the appearance of a village seen in the early morning before its little life has begun to show itself. The buildings have been erected from time to t...

BADGER'S CREEK, Or the Badger Greek, aa it is moBt frequently named, rises in Mount Juliet and flows west ward into the Upper Yarra. The creek is a clear and rapid stream, running over a gravelly bed for a considerable port of its course, and having an average widen ox aDout twenty leet.
