This was not my idea to do this, it was a surprise from my partner. I thought it might be interesting and have some good historical information and perhaps some stories of people who had been there. It didn’t ... look I will say that obviously there are people who want to find ghosts or entities’... I do not, I believe we should leave the spirits of this earth or the next life alone ... the souls of the dear departed alone. So I was most disappointed to discover that this was a night spent holding ridiculous ‘tools’ and watching a guide spin a crystal (I could see clearly his wrist and arm moving) and tell us about his and other’s experiences finding the paranormal. Very little history given and what was given seemed to contradict what we had been told in the historical day tour, which was excellent. Also he made up a whole load of fake stories about murders etc that when questioned he couldn’t say had actually happened at the sight. So if you want to chase ghosts you will be disappointed, we didn’t see anything that would convince me or my partner ... even though the guide assured us all we’d be convinced by the end of the tour. If you want to hear stories of real people and their experiences you will be disappointed. It did give us a good lot to laugh about the next morning. It was a waste of a Saturday night.... go to the restaurant instead.... it looked good ... The guide, Ross did seem a nice man though.

As Sydneysiders we never knew this place existed. So much history and while good intentioned so much ugly history. John was our guide and great story teller. Wife and Son enjoyed the tour and experiences. I didnt feel ghosts but I do appreciate that ghosts are not something that can be controlled and with what happened at that location it must be haunted. We had a small group (7) which helped and suggest that group sizes be limited.

Hi 102gavinp, Thanks for your 5 star review of Q Station Ghost Tours, We do have a very long history here at Q Station, as Sydney's old Quarantine Station. Although its very interesting, it is also incredibly sad to learn about the experiences of people here during the time of Quarantine. Due to this fact, our history tours are incredibly interesting and a must do for any Sydney resident! This history also creates a site that is perfect for paranormal activity. The unrest of different souls that visited Q Station, leave an energy that cant be denied. Based on the belief of many paranormal investigators and pagan history buffs, there are certain times of the year where the "Veil" between the spirit and physical world is thinner, such as Halloween. I challenge you to come back during one of these periods to do a 'Spirit Investigator' or 'Extreme ghost tour'. Thanks again for your 5 star review, we hope to have you back soon! Kind regards, Lachlan - Marketing Coordinator

We had a fantastic tour guide who gave insights into the history of the Quarantine Station and Australia. He was able to weave in ghost stories, but I wouldn't say it was scary at all. A little spooky or creepy at times (which is good for the imagination, whether clairvoyant or skeptic), but overall a fun time. Also great food on the premisis at Boilerhouse (a little more expensive) or Engine Room (for beers/burgers and outside dining).

8am tour by Chris. Good guide but skeptic me more interested in the history of this amazing place. Should have taken a pure history tour but step-daughter wanted this one. Some of the medical facts a bit woolly, eg Spanish flu is an H1N1 influenza virus which do not breed in warm air they replicate in cells only but spread rapidly by droplet (coughing sneezing) infection so that is why the warm steam rooms and carbolic acid showers were so deadly. Smallpox is virion caused disease can be spread by the infected pox scabs in blankets, but Yersinia pestis is the bacteria that causes the Black Plague, natural host the rat flea. Etc. But that's a bit nerdy picky picky I agree. The amazing location, and preserved buildings more than made up for the downside stuff.

I would like to mention that I am a partial believer, I do sense spookiness at haunted spots. But this was not even close to it. I read a lot of reviews, checked multiple sites, and everywhere it was indicated how scary and eerie the whole place is. To add to my excitement, I chose extreme ghost encounter that says it's only for 18+. Only to experience a history tour with bed-time ghost stories. The group was so big (over 20) that all of us sitting in a small dark room, listening to ghost stories didn't scare us anyway. There was no experience, but only and only stories. Btw, other attendees did mention they saw shadows and whatnot (really?). None of us did. We were 5 and all of us thought the same. Absolutely bored throughout, and only waited for it to get over. It was a nice place with historical information & good views. What put us off was an expensive ticket sold for the misleading experience. Don’t sell it as a haunted experience, please.

Hello. Thanks for taking the time to review Q Station Ghost Tours. I have forwarded your feedback to the relevant department heads for training and improvement purposes. Sorry to hear that you found the tour to be more informative with stories than a scare experience like you were hoping. Hopefully next time you return, you will experience a more eerie feel as we do have guests who swear by their paranormal experiences at Q Station. Kind regards, Lachlan - Marketing Coordinator
