Experience Quarantine Station, located directly near the harbour in Sydney, Australia. This Quarantine Station was always an idle, dark and lonely place where death was imminent. As the first port of call for ships carrying passengers to join the colony, many carried over infectious diseases such as smallpox, causing a large number of deaths. It is said that some of those who acquired these diseases chose to never leave the port after arrival. The hospital was created, where individuals carrying these diseases were quarantined off so to not spread the disease to others. You can now take a spooky walking tour of the facility including the morgue, dining hall and shower blocks.
