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.

Best to do a guided tour so as to appreciate what went on here way back. How the Brisbane river was mined and the technology used back then was ingenious. Lots of interesting displays to see and there is a shop & toilets available.

The tours are amazing. Even more considering that they are all volunteers.
