I did the 2 hour tour and this was very interesting and the guide sure did know his stuff and made the tour so interesting. Saw the autopsy room which was very interesting and the area where peoples baggage was disinfected. It was a very hot day and there is a lot of walking involved but the tour is well... More

I booked the two-hour Qurarantine Station day tour, as the ghost tour was going to be far too difficult for me to achieve by public transport. However, I was not disappointed by the quality of the experience. Bob, the friendly guide, was clearly very knowledgeable about the site and the history, and we saw quite a few different buildings around... More

Our guide was Sarah, who's upbeat personality, passion for the subject and knowledge made the tour very enjoyable and memorable. We were provided with a large umbrella, and much of the tour takes you indoors to different... More

This restored Heritage site contains both a museum and boutique hotel at North Head on Sydney Harbour. It is located in Manly which is easily accessed by a 30 minute ferry ride from Circular Quay across the world's most splendid harbour. You will need to preregister for this one hour tour ... mine featured an excellent tour guide who brightened... More

What a great way to spend a Saturday afternoon. An interesting trip back to the early days of Quarantine in Australia, when it was more focused on human diseases. The guide Martin was brilliant, taking us on the journey that many settlers arriving into Sydney by ship experienced. From the inhalation chambers, that cleansed the lungs to the showers with...
