Fort Lytton defended Brisbane continuously from colonial times until after WW2.

Fort Lytton itself consists of about a hectare of colonial buildings, tunnels and other structures embedded in a protective earth-mound wall, surrounded by a 10m-wide wet moat.

There are also other fortifications, buildings and exhibits surrounding Fort Lytton.

The top photograph shows a re-enactment of colonial soldiers firing one of Fort Lytton’s original guns. Re-enactments of various types occur regularly at Fort Lytton. See Coming Events for more information.
