Haunted HotelQ Station might boast a beautiful location and wonderful views, but, as a former quarantine station, it has a very dark history. Built in 1832 to quarantine early immigrants afflicted by disease, the station was a place of horror for many and is said to be one of Australia’s most haunted places. Close to 600 inhabitants died there from scarlet fever, smallpox, typhoid, cholera or Spanish influenza. The area is popular among people hoping to witness paranormal activities and hear ghost stories as they wander through the former hospital, the morgue and the doctors and nurses' quarters, as there are ghost tours organised by the staff of Q Station themselves. The haunted part of the hotel where those tours take place, though, is in a separate location from the guest accommodation premises, so there is no need to worry if meeting a ghost isn't really part of your itinerary.
