We didn't actually intend to visit here but getting lost on way to North Point we ended up at the Q Station reception. We were encouraged to visit, offered the free shuttle bus down to the site. The driver of the bus insisted we went into what had been the First Class restaurant for free tea or coffee. Said we... More

Interesting historical buildings from quarantine days. Converted cottages with large communal areas and tea and coffee stations. You can't drive in but rather take a shuttle from the gate. Nice place by the water for a sundowner or dinner. haven't tried the restaurant so can't comment on that. Room was quaint. beautiful views from North Head. Can be pricey so... More

Me and my girlfriend now wife did this tour 11 years ago and we still talk about it!!! Easily the best ghost tour we have ever done. Absolutely petrifying and jam packed full of history. If we ever go back to Sydney we would do it again. Unfortunately it has pretty much ruined any other ghost tour we have done... More

Q Station is an experience not to be missed. You can visit for the day, but a stay is more beneficial. The historic atmosphere and rooms are just wonderful.

We stopped here as part of a harbour ferry tour since it reminded us of similar facilities at home. The sites and displays were quite compelling and show a little understood part of Australian history. I enjoyed the walk around the buildings. Unfortunately, there were no guides and only limited signs that revealed the story of the place. I feel... More

A hidden gem in Sydney. It so close to the city yet so few people seem to have heard of it. It is a definite must do.

This was our 3rd stay since the Q Station open in 2008 and having explored all the facilities and features previously we intended to just relax in this most scenic location. The restoration and best use of this remarkable facility is a testament to the operators vision. We stayed in a Deluxe Queen which seemed very familiar(maybe we had stayed... More

We live in Manly and just came to get away for a night and had a great time. You could hear a little through the walls but luckily it wasn't a problem for us. The room was up to a great standard and it looked like there was a good room service menu but we ate at the Boilerhouse restaurant,... More
