Situated at the mouth of the Brisbane River, the Lytton Quarantine Station was the first stop for many new arrivals to Australia.

This exhibition explores the history of the station from its establishment in 1913 to the disposal of the land and buildings in the 1980s.

It includes site and building plans, quarantine orders and forms, registers, and information on the Spanish Flu and other diseases.
