Quarantine Station (Q Station Retreat) - Manly


A visit to Q Station Retreat - formerly North Head Quarantine Station - is a great experience for all ages.

As well as the rich natural history of Sydney Harbour National Park, Q Station Retreat offers beautifully restored heritage accommodation, fine dining at the Boilerhouse Restaurant and a range of experiences to suit young and old. All this combines to make Q Station a wonderful place to stay, relax and enjoy the best of what Sydney has to offer. Home to one of Sydney's premiere conference and wedding venues, Q Station Retreat is the ideal Sydney Harbour escape.

In line with its historical significance - it was established in 1832 to quarantine early immigrants afflicted by disease - the station is said to be one of Australia's most haunted places. Who's that knocking at your door?
