Quarantine Beach.

Quarantine Beach , North Harbour, Sydney.

Quarantine Beach is named after the old Quarantine Station which operated from 1828-1984, and was the first port of call for all quarantined ships and their passengers. Today it is part of the Sydney Harbour National Park. Its buildings are used for conferences and guided tours are conducted of the Station. The beach is 200 m long, faces northwest into North Harbour, and is hemmed in by rocks at each end, together with a seawall and wharf at the southern end and is also home to a nearby Fairy Penguin rookery.
