Q Station Tours - Q Station Retreat

The former Quarantine Station at North Head, Manly is a large historic site within the Sydney Harbour National Park.

From the 1830s to 1984 migrant ships arriving in Sydney with suspected contagious disease anchored inside North Head and off-loaded passengers and crew into quarantine to protect local residents from the threat of infection. To really understand what these people went through, and the spirit they left behind, immerse yourself in Q Station's interactive experiences.
