Byron and Clair Houses (Buildings 3 & 4)
Originally designed as female admission wards, each building consisted of 16 individual rooms arranged in two wings of eight rooms each. These were at right angles to the main part of the building which contained a sitting and dining room with bay windows. However, due to a shortage of accommodation, the sitting room was converted to a dormitory shortly after opening. Byron and Clair Houses were made entirely of brick and had a deep shady verandah running along the front. The curved verandah valances match those of Blair Pavilion.
In 1963, Byron & Clair Houses were given over to the State Government to house wayward, delinquent girls. This was to become the infamous Karrala House.
