WOODMAN POINT

Woodman Point was named after the purser Thomas Woodman who accompanied Stirling in 1827 on the HMS Success.
Woodman Point quarantine station was constructed in the shadow of the failed settlement at Clarence. (see also Clarence Settlement Monument) An adventurous scheme to settle immigrants in the 1830s organised by Thomas Peel. The area is mainly remembered as a treatment destination for contagious patients. The quarantine station opened in the 1880s and was used to isolate patients during the smallpox, bubonic plaque and Spanish influenza outbreaks. In the latter part of its history the buildings were used to quarantine and house Vietnamese refugees before its closure in 1979.
