Q Station

Q Station is a contemporary take of the former North Head Quarantine Station. Originally occupied by the Garrigal people, North Head was a meeting place with strong spiritual significance. In the 1830s a quarantine station was established, which operated until 1984. Now leased and in the care of the Mawland Group, the site has been transformed into Q Station, a place for powerful, rejuvenating experiences to explore the future by connecting the past to the present.


Why are you participating in the "Augustana in Australia" program?


I wanted to get an internship and see the world and this program did both of these things for me.

What value do you hope to add back to the internship site?

Whatever I can.

What do you hope to learn on your internship?

How to function in a workplace and I want to gain valuable experience that will help me get a job.

Where do you plan to travel during your term "down under?"

Not quite sure yet.  Anywhere that I can.

What do you anticipate to be the highlight of your experience "down under?"

The whole thing.
