Tour group boosts Willow Court funds

Mayor Martyn Evans receives a cheque from APIU members
Aiden Sullivan, Glenn Hevey and Nick Jarvis.
THE proceeds from a recent "After Dark" tour at Willow Court have been donated towards restoration funds for the historic site. Members of the Australian Paranormal Investigation Unit conducted a tour of the council-owned section of the site on December 10.

Limited to 18 people, the tour featured a three-hour historical component followed by supper and then a demonstration of paranormal investigation techniques.

The tour covered the Willow Court Barracks, Allonah and Carlton wards and the Industrial Therapy building and the airing yards.

Representatives of the group last week presented a cheque for $1067.70 to the council and expressed a desire to conduct similar tours in the future.


  1. A great backslapping exercise for all concerned. However the Friends of Willow Court and the Derwent Valley Players have been doing this without accolades for years. There is too much self promotion about today and a media ready to eat it up.

  2. Hi Anonymous, if you would like to share the details of donations by those groups to Willow Court funds we will gladly publish them.
