In Sickness and in Health
Spend a day discovering how disease and contagion changed the course of Sydney’s history from the days of colonisation to the present and enjoy a private tour of the historic Quarantine Station.
Explore Sydney’s past through local landmarks, from the discovery of convict medicine to tales of renowned figures forced into quarantine to protect the colony. Along the streets visit hospitals, museums and an abandoned morgue to discover the value of vaccines and advances in medical care and how this altered the lives of Sydney’s residents. Then cross Sydney harbour for a fascinating behind-the-scenes tour of the heritage-listed former North Head Quarantine Station and enjoy lunch overlooking the water.
