A bit of history: Before the development of modern medicine, infectious diseases posed a major threat to public health. The only means available to safeguard the public from outbreaks was to isolate sufferers and those they had been in contact with. For immigrants in the...More

We visited the Quarantine station while living in Sydney and it was a brilliant way of learning about the settlers and their experiences of arriving here. Even relatively recent newcomers had to pass by the station, it was in use until the 60's. We had...More

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
