From Quarantine to Q Station Book

The 2016 edition of From Quarantine to Q Station: Honouring the Past and Securing the Future was officially launched in May 2016.

The site of Q Station, located on Sydney's North Head, is rich in history and natural beauty. From Quarantine to Q Station tells the fascinating story of this remarkable site—from its dramatic, wind-swept escarpments, unique populations of native plants and animals and history of aboriginal settlement through to the evolution of modern quarantine practices, the history of infectious disease in Australia and the often moving personal stories of some of the Quarantine Station’s many detainees.

Featuring historical photos that offer great insight into the grounds and detainees, this book is a must-read for anyone interested in the quarantine history of Australia.
