Q Station - Manly
Sydney's Q Station has fast become one of the city's most successful heritage sites, combining stylish accommodation with spectacular views and a fascinating history.
Preserved within 30 acres of the Sydney Harbour National Park at North Head, Q Station occupies the site of Australia's first and longest-running quarantine station, a temporary home for more than 13,000 people over 150 years of operation.
Carefully restored and sympathetically adapted at a cost of more than AUD19 million, it now operates as a profitable tourism venture while at the same time funding the preservation of its historic buildings and artefacts.
Q Station's location is among the most dramatic in Sydney - secluded in a sandy cove beside native bushland and towering cliffs, with views spanning the broadest reaches of the harbour from the city to the seaside suburb of Manly. It takes 35 minutes to reach from the city centre.
