An interesting look back at Brisbane's history. Great re-enactment well worth the trip. Take the time to visit the buildings, cannons and bunkers of an era past. Well supported by volunteers passionate about the significance of this site.

The history is great but the re-enactment is 100% supreme and totally worth attending. I'll be bringing a group of friends, next time
