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 thoroughly enjoyed our day out at Forty Lytton. The 2 hour guided tour was excellent with one of the volunteers providing a great insight into the past. Would definitely recommend.

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.

A little bit of history in Brisbane. The fort is open most Sundays to the public. Great for photoshoots and wandering around, stay out of the long grass or get eaten by snakes.
