Quarantine Station Ghost Tours

They run history, ghost & paranormal tours ranging from 45 minutes to overnight! North Head Quarantine Station was used from the 1830's to isolate people suspected to be carrying contagious diseases such as Spanish Influenza, Smallpox or Bubonic Plague. This strict quarantine was enforced in the hope that these deadly diseases would not reach the general population in Sydney. The Quarantine Station's heritage buildings reflect a rich history. Thousands of carved stone engravings record the diverse cultural and social backgrounds of quarantined passengers, mapping the stationís use from its early beginnings until its closure.
