Do the guided tour and get lots of interesting history from the guides. The water walk out back great and building a marvel. If you are in town take the time to do the tour really worth the effort.

When you do a tour like this the guides make it. Our guides were fantastic full of historic and present information, The walk along the bank overlooking the sea was very informative especially as we observed a big freighter heading out and the retrieval of the pilot off the ship.

A warning if you want to be on this tour, be there early. We have a guide dog so took us a bit longer than we had planned to get ready but still arrived exactly on time. The gate had been closed and when we rang the guard room we were told to come back tomorrow (we live 2 hours... More

Do the tour here it is worthwhile to learn about the history of the place and the entrance to port phillip bay. You get to see the bay from a different view point which is great and learn about how Victorians were protecting our state from pirates as well as enemies at war.

An amazing piece of history. A little sad to think of the wars but intriguing in the same instance. :-)

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...

Wow a must do if you want to know about the history of our bays and military and how they protected us. This is a tour guide as it still in operation children will like this but of an age where they can understand, school age.
