For over 150 years the Quarantine Station was for many, the beginning of a new life in Australia after making the arduous & lengthy journey from their homelands. Ships suspected of harbouring people infected with contagious disease such as Spanish Influenza, Smallpox or Bubonic Plague were quarantined here so that these deadly diseases would not reach the general population in Sydney. Ultimately a success story for the growing Sydney population, it did however leave an indelible mark on those that were quarantined; tales of love and loss play out alongside themes of cultural and social change, medical history and progress. Activities are designed to develop critical, creative and reflective thinking skills. Exploration of the natural and built environment, handling artefacts, interacting with primary sources and hearing stories fosters empathy with the past and ongoing consideration of how the site has been valued by different constituencies throughout its history. All of Q Station’s school excursion programs have significant links to the NSW and Australian National Curriculum across multiple subject areas,
