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

I came to Fort Queenscliff with my school group today on a beautiful Autumn's day! Margaret was an excellent guide who was very knowledgeable about the content she was presenting and very passionate about it. She did excellently with creating rapport with us as a tour group and even related what she was presenting to our studies, which was fantastic... More

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. The tour guide Paul was warm and exceptionally knowledgable. We were greeted by happy and courteous security and customer service staff. The front gate is a little... More
