The historical aspect of the place, the set aside tea rooms, the wonderfully maintained lawns and gardens, the harbour views, the tasty brekky, the spooky atmosphere upon and after dusk plus the evening dining with energetic waiter running up and down the stairs.

We dropped into Q Station as part of a hike to North Head and weren't sure what to expect. It doesn't really cater to day visitors except those doing a pre-booked tour. However, don't let that deter you. The museum at the Visitor center near...More

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.

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.
