Fort Lytton defended Brisbane continuously from colonial times until after WW2. The historic fort consists of about a hectare of colonial buildings, tunnels and other fortified structures embedded in a protective earth-mound wall and surrounded by a 10m-wide water-filled moat. In addition, numerous other fortifications, museum buildings and outdoor exhibits occupy the 13 hectare site.
