A really interesting and informative historical tour of the Leighton Battery guns at Fremantle. Tour took around an hour, mostly underground, and only $12 per adult. The tunnels are very safe and easy underfoot, no closed in footwear required. A fantastic tour, I learnt a lot about WA history, ANZAC history, large guns and ammunition.I wish I'd done it sooner....

This is a fantastic site to visit that we stumbled upon by accident. The tour was very informative and at a very reasonable price . 2 adults and 2 children cost us 20 dollars . We found it to be free from all the touristy rubbish that is often found at other attractions .

The tour guides are really knowledgeable and approachable as they take you to explore the tunnels and guns and it is really quite reasonably priced at $8.00 per adult. The tours are about an hour depending on the guide and amount of questions people ask. We went after brunch for a relaxed Sunday afternoon and it was enjoyable.

I visited today with a friend and our children. Both aged 10. One a boy and a girl. I was very surprised to find the tunnels went for over 300m. It was a very interesting tour and I learnt some WA history I never knew. The children enjoyed the 90 minute tour as well. I would say the tour is... More

This is an informative tour, complete with WWII history. The tunnels have been carefully restored. Not suitable for the physically disabled, or infirm.

As this attraction is only open on Sundays (10am -3pm), it had been on my "to do" list for several years before I finally got there! A beautiful, mild, sunny day was an ideal time to stop by to visit. Volunteers staff the site and are very helpful and informative on the tours ($8 each for adults - excellent value... More

There are not many historical attractions in Perth but this is a ripper. Great tours (cool tunnels on a hot day) and interesting stories from the volunteer guides. Easy walk from the carpark and tours are good for all ages.

This is one of Perth's lesser known WW2 historic sites. It actually was part of a broader Fremantle Port coastal defence strategy which our helpful guide Phil informed us of. The tunnels were safe to travese through and full of great photographs and prop displays accompanied by voice-overs. A great experience for all.
