We stayed in the en-suite cabin, enjoyed buffet style breakfast and meals at the beach-side restaurant. Highlight was having the beach with child-friendly waves, stunning bush land and wildlife all so close to our accommodation and dining areas. Wish we stayed longer than 2 nights.

If you're into history or the paranormal, then this is a not to miss location. The history is expertly and lovingly told, as are the ghost stories around the place, depending on which tour you take. Both are fantastic tours and the guides have certainly...More

This is our second visit (staying 3nights). We love the facilities which include a shuttle bus to take you to and from your apartment if not wanting to walk. The accommodation looks out over beautiful Sydney harbour. Check out further reviews on TA.

My husband and I came to the Manly Quarantine Station for a mid week getaway. Accomodation and included breakfast were great. The station is steeped in history and we walked around exploring every part. The water views were outstanding. Staff were fantastic. A five minute...More

Our tour guide, Ally, was very entertaining, informative and engaging. She is the best tour guide I have come across in Sydney and went above and beyond to provide us with as much information as possible. Definitely book a tour here!

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

Hmmm, I think I'd ask the Station. Normally, you park at the gate and take a small bus down to the accommodation which is spread out, mostly along a flat road at the top of the cliff. But the property runs down to the beach... More

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.
