It always frustrates me when things could be great, but miss the mark due to management issues, and greed. As instructed we arrived half an hour early to catch the minibus. We were there first. Yet when the bus arrived we were mobbed by latecomers,...More

We came here for the day. 3 adults and 3 young children. The weather was glorious so we had a nice walk through the quarantine station, where you can now stay overnight too. Then headed down to the beach. This is a really nice day...More

Really disappointed with this tour. Not because of the guide (she was great and did the best she could) but because of drunk idiots in the group. The group was too big with 20 people. I think the groups need to be a lot smaller...More

Did the Ghostly Encounters tour with Snowy as our guide. Very informative with the history of Q Station and had some great stories, good sense of humour too.

I didnt know what to expect but I was blown away by the beauty of the property, the sad and fascinating history and the beautifully kept and maintained rooms. It was a highlight of my trip to Australia.

Great place. Clean, basic comfortable rooms. Heaters warmed room up perfectly. Very interesting. I didn't do any tours. Everything has information so you get an idea of how the station worked. Breakfast was lovely and Don't go past the restaurant - outstanding. Staff were excellent.

I love a good spine tingling story so I had to go on the two ghost tours this place offers. The Ghostly Encounters was not only spooky, but I learned much about the place and the history. The Extreme Ghost Tours was nice, but I...More

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

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.
