Running for over 20 years, Ghostly Encounters is the Q Station's most popular tour and not to be missed experience.
Featured on paranormal reality TV show Ghost Hunters International, Sydney's Quarantine Station is reputed to be one of the most haunted sites in Australia!
North Head Quarantine Station was used for over 150 years to isolate people who had or had been exposed to deadly infectious diseases such as bubonic plague, spanish influenza, smallpox, typhus, scarlet fever and yellow fever. Over 500 people died during the Station's 150-year history and it is said that their spirits have never left.

If you can only do one ghost tour...
We have been on this tour several times and it is one of the best. Not only do you get a tour of many places and buildings within the Q Station that are genuinely spooky, but you learn about the history of the facility and get to see some beautiful night time sights of Sydney Harbour and the surrounding bushland.
