For a taste of something different and unique to Manly, take a tour of Q Station.

From the 1830s to 1984, migrant ships arriving in Sydney anchored inside North Head and off-loaded passengers and crew with suspected contagious disease into quarantine to protect local residents from the threat of infection. The Q Station Tours recount the stories and experiences of those who were there.

Take the Quarantine Station Story Day Tour and learn about the day to day living experiences of the early quarantine internees. Find out what it was like to be quarantined in those days. Hear the personal stories of passengers who were quarantined and the dedicated staff who took care of them.

The Quarantine Station Story Day Tour takes two hours. If you don’t have much time to spare, take the Wharf Wander tour instead. Join a guide and get a brief overview of the history of the Quarantine Station.

As one of the most haunted sites in Australia, the Quarantine Station has its share of ghostly stories and unexplained phenomena. Take the Adult Ghost Tour. Join a storyteller as he recounts the strange things that have happened to former tour internees and visitors to the site. Grab a lantern and explore the most haunted buildings such as the hospital, morgue and the shower block. Be on the lookout for unusual sounds and smells.

Although the Adult Ghost Tour is not suitable for children under 16 years, the kids can still try the ghost tour, Family Ghosty, as long as they are accompanied by an adult. The guides on the Family Ghosty select stories that are just as captivating but less frightening for children.

If you’ve ever wanted to make contact with the spirits, dare to try Spirit Investigator. This advanced ghost tour lets you explore an area of the Station known for paranormal activity. Using gadgets to detect ghosts, you may encounter a paranormal experience.

There’s also the Extreme Ghost Tour which takes ghost stories to the next level. Hear tales of malevolent spirits and shocking events. Basic experiments will be used to try and encourage paranormal activity. This tour is not for the faint of heart.

The bravest souls may opt for the Ghostly Sleepover. See what happens after everyone leaves. Join a guide for a late night walk through one of the most haunted buildings. Test equipment used by real ghost hunters and spend the night in one of Australia’s most haunted sites.

Get a glimpse of Manly’s history and try one of Manly Quarantine Station’s tours. Q Station is located in Manly just a few minutes away from our Manly Beach Family Apartments.
