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.

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...
