Tours

Guided tours are led by passionate Fort Scratchley Historical Society volunteers with a wealth of knowledge about the site.

From 1 November a modified Tunnel Tour is available. The Tunnel Tour provides unique insight into the history of the site.

Tunnel Tours must be booked and pre-paid online as capacity is limited. Tours are offered at regular intervals each day the Fort is open: 10.30am, 11.30am, 1.10pm 1:40pm, 2.30pm.

The tour duration is 60 minutes, yet it is recommended you allow 90 minutes on site.

Unfortunately, due to the narrow stairs and hallways, the tour is unsuitable for wheelchairs, walkers, prams & strollers.
