World War history starts here! Worth a tour.

Passionate tour guides! If you like history then you cannot pass this up! Tours run daily and plenty to see. A 10 minute walk from the ferry terminal.

With apologies to my Australian friends you just don't expect so much history in one location in such a relatively young Country. I learned huge amounts about the military history of the Victoria region and the approach to the heads, Genuinely interesting, educational and with stunning coastal views this really is a great day out and you can easily spend...

The Fort in Queenscliffe dates back to the 1860's and is immaculately looked after. You can only visit as part of a tour, which depart at 1pm & 3pm every Saturday & Sunday. Tours are $12 for adults, $6 for children and well worth the price. The knowledgeable guides explain the purpose of each building, and take you below the... More

After my forth trip through this piece of gold rush related history I still find a few new things to look at. The Fort is well preserved and maintained despite its proximity to the harsh marine environment. The main armaments, magazines and tunnels are still in place and have been nicely enhanced with some very good exhibits and stories. Suitable... More

If you're interested in the history of the area, then this tour is definitely a must. Our tour guide is a volunteer and just loved talking to us. Unfortunately you can't enter many of the main buildings due to regulations but just to walk around and understand why the Fort was built and how it was used during the 2nd... More
