Attended a conference in the venue which included a tour. Fascinating place with the old shower areas, the ships markers on the cliff wall and the spooky autopsy room. Great views across the harbor. Venue provided an excellent lunch.

The Q station is a hotel within the grounds of the old quarantine facility on North Head in Manly. It has a superb outlook over the harbour but in a relaxed bushland setting. It has a beautiful private beach with a local penguin population. The...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...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

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.
