Quail Island is a perfect family outing with something for everyone - safe swimming, walking tracks and historic sites including pioneer quarantine barracks, replica leper colony huts, shipwreck graveyard and the site of Scott’s Antarctic expedition quarantine kennels.

Allow 1 hour to walk the Discovery Trail or 2.5 hours to walk around the whole island. Get there on a Black Cat cruise, run twice daily during summer, less frequently in autumn and winter.
