This place is wonderful, fantastic views, great stories, beautiful flora and fauna, and amazing buildings. Our tour guide created vivid images of the events and characters in his story telling. I think Q station could be Sydney's Ellis Island if it was curated and promoted...More

Not only a great history lesson, but with the tour guides ghostly tales being told as we wandered between various dark deserted buildings, (including the gas chamber, gravediggers cottage, and morgue) the tension certainly built up as the evening progressed. Luckily we were in a...More

The Q station tour was really interesting. I was hoping and also not hoping we'd see a ghost. lol. Lots of interesting information. Worth a visit for something different.

Five couples decided to spend time in Sydney and we stayed at Quarantine Station. The accomodation was very comfortable and of a good standard. Ghost and history tours, harbour views, bush setting with wildlife and great food. I would recommend this highly

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

Hi Kizzi, yes you will be walking for the majority of the tour, however you will regularly stop at buildings and other attractions along the way. So it's broken up over the duration of the tour.
