There is something strange and eerie when one visits the Quanrantine Station at North Head. This place is so rich with history that you could almost taste it in the air. The station was once a hospital that used to house disease infected immigrants and its inhabitants were shunned from society. Surrounding the station is a mortuary and burial grounds used for those who did not make it to Sydney.

If you love ghost stories or if you are bold enough, then the night tours around the station is highly recommended. The Ghost Tours takes visitors around the station's facilities using only kerosene lamps while telling ghost stories for a period of 3 hours. Tea and damper are usually served towards the end.

TIPS: To get to the Quarantine Station, you need to take a shuttle bus. You have to join the National Parks and Wildlife Services tour in order to gain access to this facility.

Bookings for the Ghost Tour must be made ahead of schedule and are open on Wednesday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday. It cost around $20 for adults and is not suitable for children.
