Discovery Day 2018 was great to have a free open day to see the different sites at Q Station, having been twice at night looking around in daylight gave a different perspective of this great site rich in history

We went on the ghost tour. The guide was informative and the tour was interesting from a historical perspective but I didn't see any ghosts and it was not incredibly scary or anything. The creepiest thing was the real life aspect thinking about people who...More

The Quarantine Station is really interesting and gives a unique view into the history of Sydney and the people that came out on so many long sea voyages, of the diseases they faced ... and the cures they faced! It's very well preserved and maintained....More

A 40-minute ferry ride from Circular Quay will take
you to the famous northern beach of Manly. The beaches
here are perfect for learning to surf or spending the
day sun-tanning. The walk from Spit Bridge to Manly is
a great way to experience Sydney Harbour Bay and the
Australian bush land. Along the foreshore, there are
plenty of watering holes and wine bars with excellent
cuisine. There are plenty of kid-friendly restaurants

Hmmm, I think I'd ask the Station. Normally, you park at the gate and take a small bus down to the accommodation which is spread out, mostly along a flat road at the top of the cliff. But the property runs down to the beach... More

Ferries leave from Circular Quay in Sydney to the Manly Pier, you can walk to the Quarantine station from the Manly Wharf but it is a fairly steep 40 minute walk.
