North Fort tour
North Fort at North Head Sanctuary Manly, played a major role in the Defence of Sydney during WWII. It was part of a system of coastal defences stretching from Port Stephens to Port Kembla. The North Fort fortifications were built between 1935 & 1939 and housed two 9.2 inch breech loading Mark 10 guns. The tunnels can be accessed via guided tour only so come along to experience the almost 300 meters of underground tunnel system including the Magazine & Shell Store, Pump Chamber & Engine Room. Hear how the soldiers loaded & operated these incredible guns with shells weighing 172 kg. The tour also includes a video of the fort in action and a walk along Australia’s Memorial Walk which commemorates the service of men and women in the defence of Australia in peace and in war.
