Quarantine yourself with the paranormal this Halloween!
Q Station, formerly known as the North Head Quarantine Station, is consistently voted as one of the most haunted sites in Australia. Over 572 bodies are recorded to be buried on the property as it was the final resting place for many migrants who suffered arduous journeys to Australia on ships plagued by infectious disease. The Quarantine Station was open from 1828 – 1984 and witness to over 150 years of misfortune. Untimely deaths have left behind many stories of pain, loss and suffering; as well as the accompanying restless spirits which haunt the site today.
