Strategically placed at the northern entrance to Sydney Harbour, North Fort was part of a defence system that spanned 300km of coastline during World War II.
The once active army base previously featured 9.2 inch calibre guns, capable of firing a distance of 26km. Each heavy weapon was operated by nine soldiers with support from personnel running the underground shell and engine rooms.
During this 75 minute guided tour, our experienced guide will lead you from the North Fort Visitor Centre to Australia’s Memorial Walk, honouring the nation’s service people. From there, you will visit North Fort’s gun emplacements before descending into the 200-metre-long tunnel complex, located beneath the historic fortification.
