The North Head Quarantine Station is a nationally significant heritage site within Sydney Harbour National Park. The site was leased to the private sector to access private capital that could conserve the site, provide greater access and more powerful experiences than government was capable of.
We prepared the winning tender and worked with the developer / operator for 10 years to gain the approvals, conserve and adapt the site, then operate it to a sustainable point.
The project created a 90 room retreat, two restaurants, conference and function centre, visitor centre, theatre performance, guided history tours, ghost and spirit investigator tours and school education programs.
The operation has been highly awarded and for his efforts Simon was runner up in the 2008 Australian Travel Innovator Award.
