  • Fantastic piece of Victorian History. Well maintained and regular fort tours. An impressive outdoor display of heavy artillery pieces, including a 'disappearing' gun recovered and restored from the South Channel Fort. Highly recommended. Contains Australia's only Black Lighthouse (One of three in the world). Spectacular bay views, especially of the Port Phillip Heads.
  • Great to see when in Queenscliff. Interesting history behind the walls of the fort. The tour guide was knowledgeable and kept everyone interested
