Sydney's famous haunted hospital re-opens this New Year's Eve

On Thursday 31 December, the former hospital at Manly's stunning Q Station will re-open its doors to over 200 'Doctors' and 'Nurses', for a cheeky and quirky themed New Year's Eve party, that is already creating a buzz within its resident spirit community.

"There have been a number of recent sightings on our popular ghost tours of the Matron, who ran the hospital during the 1920s – I think she knows that there is something big in the making, but doubt she will have ever seen a party of this scale in the hospital!" says Brendan Millett, General Manager, Q Station.

Q Station's famous haunted hospital will be transformed into a grand ballroom, for the New Year's Eve fancy-dress themed event, offering one of the best vantage points of both the Manly and Sydney Harbour Bridge fireworks displays.

Tickets are only $179 and include a three-course meal, unlimited premium drinks, live DJ entertainment, and transfers both to and from Manly Wharf.

Top three reasons to celebrate New Year's Eve at Q Station:

  1. Within the top 10 New Year's Resolutions are losing weight, quitting smoking, reducing stress and getting healthy and fit. What better place to start than by dancing the night away amongst a crowd of Doctors and Nurses?
  2. If you can't beat them – join them: Donning a white coat, you should be able to easily blend in with the crowd (paranormal and human alike). You never know who you might meet.
  3. Every year, hundreds of shoes and toes are scuffed and stubbed as party goers make the steep trek up to North Head to get the best view of both the Manly and Sydney Harbour Bridge. Ditch the blanket in car park and party in style!
