Fort Lytton National Park

Historical Sites and Heritage Locations Landmarks and Buildings National Parks and Reserves

Fort Lytton National Park protects the birthplace of Queensland’s military history. From 1881 to 1945 this classic coastal fortress was the focus of Queensland’s defence activity. One of several built around Australia’s coast in the nineteenth century for protection from invasion, the well-preserved pentagonal fort is concealed behind grassy embankments and surrounded by a water-filled moat.

Join a guided tour and immerse yourself in the fascinating history of the fort and its restored guns, which were designed to fire and disappear! Learn more detail in the museum. Enjoy a picnic with a background of scenic river views. Fort Lytton is half an hour’s drive from the centre of Brisbane.
