Quarantine Station

What you can expect

Immigrants seeking haven in Australia hundreds of years ago often found this scenic slice of the region as their first port of call, where an often harsh welcome awaited. Today, its lovely outlook belies the trials and tribulations that foreign travellers encountered when admitted to the Quarantine Station, and visitors can learn about the history and operations of the station via historic tours that provide detailed insight. In the present day, the Q Station also serves other purposes, as well - it's home to lovely heritage accommodation providing a great harbour outlook, and those after some spine-tingling history can embark on a ghost tour for tales of the paranormal.
