The Friends of Quarantine Station committee was formed when negotiations were underway between the National Parks and Wildlife Service and a hotel developer. The National Parks and Wildlife Service plan to sign a headlease agreement to give this developer the right to manage the Quarantine Station for 45 years.

The Friends of Quarantine Station are concerned that this agreement will severely limit public access to this heritage site.





Friends of Quarantine Station Mission Statement :
To raise public awareness of the rich heritage that exists at Manly Quarantine Station,
to campaign to reverse the current privatisation plans of the National Parks and Wildlife Service
and to work towards a sustainable management structure for the Manly Quarantine Station
which would preserve the Station intact for this and future generations.
