Fascinating look around the quarantine station as part of a ghost tour at night. Very informative, something different.

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

Hi Ghosthunterlyn Just wanted to ask was the sleepover tour that you did with Anne and Rob from ESP investigations the one that is advertised on the website as Ghosty Sleepover tour ? or was it a different tour ? Cheers

Any investigations organised with ESP are advertised on the Paranormal Investigation Night page on the Q Station website. Our regular Ghosty Sleepover is different to this. For more information see our website or contact... More
I am wondering how you get out to the Quarantine Station? Are there tour companies that bring you out for the tour - especially the evening tour - I wouldn't want to be trying to get there by bus.

Hi Shaley, There is a free visitor's car park at the entrance of Q Station, and shuttle buses regularly go around our site to transport people. We do this because it's a National Park and we'd like to protect the nature and... More
Can anyone comment on how hard the walk is for the adult ghost tour? Are you walking for the full time?

Response from Laura M | Property representative |
Hi Kizzi, yes you will be walking for the majority of the tour, however you will regularly stop at buildings and other attractions along the way. So it's broken up over the duration of the tour.
