Fort Lytton is Queensland's foremost military exhibit, with extensive historic fortifications, Queensland's largest military museum and regular military re-enactments. Admission, guided tours and parking are all free on Sundays and most public holidays. It's a great day out for everyone, from families to serious historians.

We are locals and absolutely enjoyed the experience of walking through some history of our home city. We recommend doing the two hour guided tour rather than walking around on your own. Our guide, Graham, was so informative and friendly and it made it all...More
