Fever Hospital, Wellington, New Zealand

I’ve been thinking about the Fever Hospital up on Mount Victoria today, and spying on it using Google Maps. The history about this place is amazing. There’s an article about it on the WCC Heritage Building website. There are also some interesting photos of it being built on the CCDHB website.

When I was a teenager we used to break into this place and scare the shit out of ourselves. I must say that Linda and I are the bravest and the guys were always too scared. Some of you are here on Facebook eh, so you know who I’m talking about.

Once we were in there and some other people were in there with us, well, they must have been. Doors kept closing on us and you could hear things. But they do say it’s haunted! I found a discussion about it on Facebook. There are heaps of posts and discussions online about it being haunted and people seeing strange things there. They do paranormal studies there too apparently… o_O

I remember it being a lot more run down than it currently is. Photos I’ve found online of it recently look clean and tidy. When we used to go there at night (with no torches, in the dark) it was a run down place, covered in graffiti pentagrams, drug stuff everywhere, broken stairs, jamming doors, hidden corridors, strange noises. I think we only remembered the torch ONCE.

I really wish we had digital cameras when I was a teenager. There are so many images and memories in my brain which are terrifying about this place, and I would love to share them. The pictures out on the net make it seem so tame in comparison to what it was really like in the dark of night while still crumbling and broken.

Even now I’d be shit scared to go up in there the dark, and it’s been looked after and cleaned up. Well, the main buildings have. The really scary building is the square one to the south. The one with the wings is scary yes, but the one to the south is really scary.

If you were brave enough to go up the driveway, let alone up to the building or in the door of the haunted Fever Hospital in the dark – you were legend. I am legend ;)

  1. Hi, do you know how to get access to the old fever hospital, or who to contact to get access? Would love to go in with permission and my camera

  2. I know this place. I like you, along with some other local kids used to walk up and play war and break into the place to to scare our pants off each other. I still have nightmares of the place. Theres also what is now known as Capital house in the hills of Melrose dont know what it was originally and in the gardens looked like some old cemetery ruins we used o imagine and they were freaky just as much!

  3. Man this place is spooky aye don’t think I could ever balls up and check it out, even right at the Private property/video surveillance sign at top of Mt Vic entrance I nearly crapped my pants!

  4. I went up there mid January and to surprise tool a picture of the south building and caught what looked to be a nurse pointing at us

  5. I painted the old nurses hostel (well thats what we were told it was)
    directly across the carpark from fever hospital about six years ago and I believe that this place is very haunted.
    I worked there for nearly two months and saw and felt many strange things there
    still rattles me a little thinking about it even now .
    I felt alot of sadness there but in one area of the nurses hostel building there was one not very nice entity but sort of warned you to keep away also heard kids laughing another thing too was it took a long long time for paint to dry which is very odd

  6. my brother was the live in care taker of fever hospital for 11 years.i have walked around the inside of this place so many times.

  7. My parents used to live in the old nurses home sometime in the early 2000s. I used to stay with them on occasions and have been inside every part of this place. This place was amazing! At the time a lot of it was very run down and spooky as hell. Strange activity happened more times then I can count. There were a few places I would never go in on my own.
