The tour was very interesting. Our guide, Cris, was very knowledgeable and patient with us as we took time to take heaps of photos. We learned so much from her is such a short time. The place is very well preserved considering its age.

Guided tour of the fort which has played an important role in the history of the area. Very well maintained as it was in active use as a training facility until very recently. I found out some interesting facts that I never learnt in Australian history at school but should definitely be part of our curriculum. A bonus is the... More

An informative and interesting tour guide took us around Fort Queenscliff. The guide was excellent and had a great knowledge and enthusiasm about the fort. The Fort is set on the cliffs at Queenscliff and was originally established to protect the entrance to Port Phillip Bay. Established in the 1880's it features many guns etc from that era,

Great tour. We went as a family with children ages 9 and 13 and they loved it, especially dressing up in army attire. Highly recommend!

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 :)
