  1. Somewhat disturbing to read of the problems that were identified. I was a resident/DETAINEE of Baltara Reception Centre (Turana is on the same site) in the early 80’s. Initially I was held in a secure unit and then moved to an open unit. The little I recall of the secure unit was of a very sterile and dank environment. I was the victim of sexual interference by other much older boys.

    I am typing this early Christmas morning. A month or so ago I was working out where to go after Christmas with my 2 daughters. One of the choices was to visit Melbourne and go back to the Parkville site so I can permanently close that chapter in my life after nearly 30 years. We now live in Adelaide.
