The stunning natural environment serves to remind us that long before the site was used as a Quarantine Station, it is acknowledged that the local Aboriginal people used Car-rang-gel (North Head) as a special place for healing and teaching by the koradgee (wise ones).
First contacts between the local Aboriginal people and the First Fleeters took place in nearby coves.
