Frequently Asked Questions

​Q Station is located within Sydney Harbour National Park Manly. For the safety of all our guests and native wildlife, vehicle access on site is restricted to Q Station vehicles only. For your wedding, complimentary shuttle bus services will be provided to transfer your guests to the desired location. The dedicated shuttles will be factored into your run sheet with the Wedding Coordinator. The shuttles can move 100 people in approximately 30 minutes (each shuttle holds up to 11 guests).

Your guests are very welcome to walk between the ceremony and reception locations if they would prefer. All Q Station guests have access to complimentary parking in the outdoor car park at the front office.

To assist your suppliers in accessing the venue for setting up and packing down, Q Station will escort them to their required location, having the supplier follow behind a Q Station shuttle bus in their own vehicle. The supplier will then unload and move their vehicle to a designated parking location.

Q Station offers a range of different packages, including sit-down, cocktail, micro and ceremony only packages. All packages include the set-up, pack down and staffing for the duration of your wedding or event.
