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.

The site has certain hours for visiting the Fort Queescliff Museum. Lots of history and an eye opener. Its a must see and has a lot of character.

I took two 8 year old boys to the fort and was concerned they may lose interest and upset others on tour (all couples). No fear! The tour guide was awesome and kept the kids interested whilst feeding both adults and kids with interesting facts, stories and showing us around. She was awesome. Would have liked to spend more time... More

Great tour of Fort Queenscliff. The guide obviously loved her job. The 1 1/2 hour tour ended up being 2 hours. Really informative, you go down into the the underground magazine, the cells and the see the black lighthouse and learn the history of the fort. The Military museum was also very interesting. $12 well spent.

Took a quick day trip to Queenscliff and found out about the Fort from a nice lady at the visitors centre. $12 for the tour is a little steep but they probably don't get many visitors so that would account for the price. Interesting tour around the grounds and our guide was very knowledgeable of the history of the fort.... More

Had a lovely tour of the beautiful grounds of the fort. Our guide was most knowledgeable. The 1.5 hr tour was worth the $12 pp entrance fee. Might be a bit dear for families or couples. We had about 15 people in our group which was a good size. The pace of the tour was good.
