Nice day trip especially if they are firing the cannons. Nice to see the history of Brisbane preserved. While you can explore the grounds on your own, the tour is much better and you get to see and learn a lot more
Fantastic place to visit that has an exhibition of wartime vehicles and firing of the canons. Friendly staff and well kept area. A must see for all who enjoy nostalgic events
Good place to visit with family. Has guided tours and reenactments. Shows Brisbane and Qlds history since white settlement. Many clubs use the facilities for events so you never know what else you might see. Canons are fired so people sensitive to noise need to be aware.
Great place to visit and have a walk around. The only extra thing it could it a few more shady spots to have a sit down.
Well run place with friendly and informative staff who can give you some background and history to the place. Should you choose to you can also just roam around on your own and check out the fort and guns. It's a great little hidden gem with some interest history. If you go on the right weekends you can also see (and hear) them firing the guns. Great fun for families and a good way to connect with some local military history. Recommended!
Good day out. Worth going on a day they fire the cannons. There are snakes in the area too.
Always a fantastic day. Grandchildren enjoyed the fighting, jousting, uniforms, guns & cannons. Can't wait until next time. We all enjoyed coffee & food at Cafe Cartel Van. All loved seeing the cruise ship pass by at sunset.To all involved in the set up & organisation - keep up the good work.
Awesome place! Did the Commemorative Tour on ANZAC Day and the guide did an amazing job describing the events of WW1. It really felt like he was recalling his own experience. And he stayed in character the whole day. A great day out and an amazing piece of Brisbane history!
Me and my.family came.here for Anzac day and we are so glad we did! Awesome piece of history to explore, kids loved it, does need a better track to walk on, especially for disabled people in wheel chairs. After having our own look around we joined the tour guide and I definitely highly recommend it! The guy who did the tour was epic at sharing the history of fort lytton place in WWII! His charisma and his deep theatricality made it so real!
Kids really enjoyed visiting here. On a nice day it's a great place to come for a walk back in time.
Great family day out. The guided tour was really interesting and informative. Thank you.
They local history information available to you there was mind blowing. Recommend this historical site for a visit.
Amazing Brisbane historical site. Wonderful hands on and interactive displays of relics from the battle of Brisbane. Tours of the site are informative and interesting. I totally recommend families to go on a weekend visit and anyone who has an interest in military history.
Cannon firing occurs once a month, and is worth visiting. Also good place to see the relics of past years and gain understanding of the history of Brisbane as a military outpost.
The family had a fantastic day out at Fort Lytton. We would definitely go back. The site showing artifects and military from days gone is amazing
