We visited the fort with four children aged between five and ten. The guide was great, engaging the children and keeping it very interesting for them. The tour lasted 90 minutes and was well worth the price of entry.

What a wonderful family activity it was to visit the Fort. We took our 7 & 10 year old boys and they were captivated by the history and previous operations of the site.

If you like and enjoy history, then you will not be disappointed with this museum. For a nominal fee (especially) for a family of 4, you get a well versed tour guide who takes you around the fort for 1.5 hours, explaining history with a sense of humour. Half of the fort is still actively used and the Australian army,... More

The tour of the fort lasted 90 minutes and the guide was very knowledgeable. There were many historical facts that I was not aware of regarding Australia's wartime involvement.
