I love a historical tour and what makes an historical tour even better is it being a Ghost Tour. Now the most haunted place in Sydney has to be The Quarantine Station at North Head, five minutes from Manly.So manly poor immigrants lost their lives there, dying from Spanish influenza, typhus, and the dreaded smallpox and many of them are buried there. Last year I went twice. Firstly with my hubby and son and secondly with a group of friends. The first tour wasn't for the faint hearted or the unfit.(there's lots of steep hills to navigate). It was called the medium tour as we were guided by a medium that actually appeared on, "Ghost Hunters International," when they filmed at the Quarantine station last year. We were given EMF meters to measure electro magnetic field which apparently ghosts give out and yes they did go off and yes I had my hair pulled and my son had his shoulder tapped.
The Quarantine Station has now luxury accommodation from $145 A a night and you can stay there for the weekend . There is also an up market restaurant called "the Boilerhouse."Mains: $26.00 - $36.00 I will have to try that next time.Here is the website
