I have seen so many of these places that you can get a bit blasé which is unfair as the guide was interesting as was the history of the place.

An interesting 90 minute tour of Fort Queenscliff. The tour guide was very informative and was good with the kids as well. Well worth a look.

A great heritage experience, the Fort dates back to 1860 when it started off as an open battery on the bluff. Apparently the first artillery shots of World War I were fired from the fort, on a German freighter. The tour and the Museum are definitely worth a look if you are in Queenscliff, just check the times, as you... More

We stumbled on the fort looking for the ferry and so glad we took the tour. Amazing. Answered so many questions and was such an interesting place. Still in operation and not just a tourist trap. Margaret our guide was brilliant and very entertaining. Her tactics for handling children on the tour were great :)

Having last week another break at Queenscliffe we decided to pay another visit to the Fort. We again decided to do the tour. It's inexpensive and we think great value. Note they only take cash! Our our guide I can't recall her name was fantastic. She was a wealth of knowledge and witty. She managed to make us all have... More

Visited on a Sunday during school holidays with children aged 9 + 12 years. Our tour group had all ages from kinder to retired people. Adults need photo ID as it's still an active Army base. It's also CASH only. $30 for a family. Tour started promptly, and Mary our guide, kept us moving and still answered all the questions... More

Our family visited Fort Queenscliff over the Queens birthday weekend. The tour of the fortress was interesting and engaging. Our tour guide was clearly ex-military but was approachable and personable to all. He engaged well with the kids on the tour and gave us opportunities to take photos and ask questions. He was also sensitive to the ages of the... More
