Together with South Head, North Head acts as the gateway to Sydney Harbour. It’s here that you’ll find Q Station Manly: a 30-hectare site sprawled across the bushland and foreshore of Sydney Harbour National Park. It originally served as the quarantine station for migrants arriving in Australia; today, you can stay within its well-preserved heritage buildings – over 70 of them – and experience a sense of complete removal despite being only half an hour from the city by ferry. Ghost tours optional.
