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.

This is an outstanding site to learn our Colonial History. These defences were put in place prior to 1880. The work that has been put into preserving this site is outstanding and ongoing. I look forward to returning in the near future.

We went to Fort Lytton National Park recently and had a great day. The guides were excellent (run by volunteers). Great stories to be told and lots of history. The kids loved walking around and for the adults very informative.
