Great insight into the start of both world wars and the sunset and beach views. Rent a bike and you'll enjoy it more.

This is a must do when you are in this area. Easy to park. Grab the bus to the fort or for the more fit amongst us, walk to the fort. Excellent views and history.

Great day wandering around the Port Neppean area, shuttle bus is well worth the $10 we paid per person. Great little exhibits with voice clips as you walk through different areas around the fort
