Quarantine Beach - Manly Australia
About & History
Quarantine Beach is named after the old Quarantine Station, which operated from 1828-1984, and was the first port of call for all quarantined ships and their passengers. Today it is part of the Sydney Harbour National Park. Its buildings are used for conferences and guided tours are conducted of the Station. The beach is 200m long, faces northwest into North Harbour, and is hemmed in by rocks at each end, together with a seawall and wharf at the southern end. Land access via the station is restricted, with a wire fence behind the beach. Most people come by boat, as you can land on the beach so long as you do not go past the fence. For information about Station tours contact the Sydney Harbour National Park on (02) 9977 6522.
Quarantine Beach is located on the harbour side of Manly, and is nestled within the boundaries of Q Station. Just a short drive from Manly Wharf and for the avid walker, its also a pleasant and scenic walk.
