Our guide worked for the Defence Forces as a historian and his knowledge was evident throughout the tour. However, it wasn't dry and boring; the discussions were engaging, the details interesting, and the fort itself was a very interesting place. I learned a lot about the war and Australia's roles in the various world wars; this is a good tour... More

Mary our guide was just brilliant - the knowledge and history she told us today about the fort was so interesting. The tour takes nearly 2 hours and really worth the visit.

This is a great place to see. The history is interesting as is the fort itself. It's a great part of Australian history and there are some beautiful old buildings on the site.

Mary, our guide walked and talked us through such an important part of Australian History. She related well to both children and adults keeping them interested at all times. One forgets how close to being invaded we really were. Any person visiting or living in the area should make the time to see part of our history.

Our guide was Mary. She was very informative and managed to keep the children in the group interested as well. She presented us with many interesting facts about the history of the fort and lighthouses. For the cost of the entrance fee this tour excellent value. Highly recommend.

This was well worth the time. Brilliantly guided informative tour. Discovered more history of the threat to our shores in war than we ever heard in history at school.

We enjoyed an interesting and informative tour of this historical fort at Queenscliff. The tour lasted for 90 minutes and was quite detailed and very appropriate for children. Our guide - Mary, included the children in all aspects of the tour, making it a relevant and fun experience for them. There are some steps to climb so beware if you... More
