With the best access being by boat, Quarantine Beach has the luxury of never becoming crowded. Named after the old Quarantine Station that welcomed quarantines passengers and ships between 1828 and 1984, the buildings that still line the wharf are now part of a fascinating historical tour.
Sitting at the end of the peninsular along from the more well-known Manly, the beach is defined by the wharf, the seawall and rocky outcrops. A fence behind protects the area from visitors by land. The beach is small and picturesque, ideal for swimming and snorkelling, but most visitors head to explore the heritage buildings, and join in the daily excursion.
Complete your trip with a pleasant lunch or dinner at either the cafe or restaurant, but if you are still there late at night you may spot a procession of lanterns bobbing along on the famous ghostly walk.
From coast to ghost, Quarantine has it all!
