    We left the round the island bus ride, visited the lighthouse, then walked the walking trails (no bikes permitted) to reach the battery. The trails are clearly marked, but narrow in parts. We then con...  more »

    Loved this place, cant beat a bit of military history. Not much to say really, but at $9 for an hour tour you cant beat the value at all, probably thanks to the volunteer guides as well though. You ca...  more »

    In my youngest years I painted the gun. With olive green paint. And working in the bunker was fun. I reckon you should visit this site. Because there's a bit of historical value here 😀.

    When me, my mum and little brother went to Rottnest Island, one of the things we did was go to the Oliver Hill Battery. We road on bikes that we rented to the bass of the hill where we parked our bikes and walked up the hill to the gun. While we waited for our tour to start I looked at the many World War II news clippings such as the Pearl Harbor Bombing. to what I learnt Fremantel was a in-portent harbor and Perth was under threat of a Japanese invasion and the gun was made to keep it safe. The gun is 3 stores. The bottom loaded shells while the top fired them. some of the tour was under ground and the stored shells their and had their dinning room there and many other things.
