Manly Quarantine Station is a place of national historical and social significance. Many immigrants to Australia spent their first few weeks here either recovering from illness or waiting to make sure they had not contracted an illness. Those who have stayed here are representative of the various stages of immigration to this country.

Most of the buildings used for quarantine this century are still standing in 1999. There are tours available every day of the week which can be booked via the National Parks and Wildlife Service. School groups visit during the week, conferences are held here and there are even ghost tours on 4 nights a week!
