A visit to Q Station in Sydney Harbour National Park is a great experience for all ages.

Q station is a hotel that can be booked for conferencing and events, but anyone can enter and visit the café, restaurant, museum, or visitor centre. You can also visit the beach between sunrise and sunset, and hire a bike or a kayak. Manly is just a few minutes away for entertainment, nightlife and iconic Manly Beach. All this combines to make Q Station a wonderful place to stay, relax and enjoy the best of what Sydney has to offer.

Q Station was established in 1832 to quarantine early immigrants afflicted by disease. You can book a ghost tour, history tour, or a school excursion at Q Station. These tours tell the stories of the quarantined; tales of love and loss alongside themes of cultural and social change, medical history and progress.

Q Station dedicated a section of land as a Peace Park in May 2019. Peace Parks symbolise a commitment to tolerance, non-violence, protecting the environment and accepting diversity.

Fort Denison heritage collection project

Fort Denison is home to a wealth of historic heritage. The Fort Denison heritage collection project invited volunteers to locate, identify, document, conserve, interpret and make accessible the heritage collections in Sydney Harbour National Park. This allowed NPWS to engage with the community and ensure our collections are protected.
