  • You can park here or walk round d the headland. Free to go in and has information boards dotted around. No rest facilities but cafe close by.

  • Free! Free parking, free visit, free to explore both floors of the fort. Free blueberries and raspberries to pick on the rocky hill outside the fort. This is a great place to bring your kids and let them run free.

  • Very very cool to explore. Bring a flashlight.
  • Great ocean views, and it's cool to walk around an old fort. Parking is very limited though, you're unlikely to find something on a warm, summer day.
