Event Description

This is your rare chance to breach quarantine! The Quarantine Station has stood in chilling isolation on Torrens Island since 1880 when it was built to stop passengers bringing small pox to Adelaide. The tour will lead you through the landing and decontamination area, the isolation hospital, morgue and graveyard. Visitors will be transported from the Maritime Museum by bus and the tour will be led by museum curators and archaeologists. You need to be reasonably fit to participate in this tour, and dressed appropriate for a bush walk.
