The Quarantine Station stands on North Head - at the entrance to Sydney Harbour - which at one time was an island but is now joined to the mainland by a narrow strip of land. It is a tied island. Through time this isolation led to some unique aspects in the ecosystem.

There are quite extensive areas of native bushland still in a relatively undisturbed state.

There is an unusual sand mound formation on the site which hosts a unique ecosystem.
