Quarantine Station in Point Nepean National Park


The quarantine station was built in 1852. This site was chose because it was remote from Melbourne and only accessible by boat. There are around 50 heritage-listed buildings making up the complex.


There are five double-storeyed buildings like this in the complex. They were used as hospitals and admin buildings amongst other uses. They were built from local sandstone. We don’t have a lot of sandstone in Victoria. Bluestone is the most well-known stone.
