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.

Our tour was fabulous. Our guide was knowledgeable and informative, and his passion for Australian military history and Queenscliff was obvious. Suitable for all ages, and all levels of background knowledge, this tour is a must. Make sure you check their opening / tour times as you can't self-tour.

A visit to Fort Queenscliff provides excellent insights into our colonial past and our early defence plans. This historic site is well maintained and the tours are very informative. Thanks for your vote if you found this review helpful.

I had an amazing time at the Fort and the Guide Paul Kenny was extremely informative and helpful and the quality of the exhibits were well presented. A part of our history that excels in history and magnificent views. Well priced and friendly people.

Always enjoy finding out about Australia's short history and this being no exception. The tour was conducted by a young lady in her 70's and was very knowledgeable about the areas history and fort. Views of the heads and bay was spectacular, as was the pilot boats in action. I did find it disappointing that none of the buildings were... More
