  • Cool place, had a nice time looking around, beautiful views out of the lookouts.
  • The Princess Royal Forts, opened in 1893, is the site of the first Australian Federal defense post. The original army barracks, both buildings and infrastructure, have been maintained entirely by volunteer endeavours until 2014 when the National ANZAC Centre was built nearby. The barracks house military displays as well as everyday items in situ, depicting life of the servicemen who passed through here to serve overseas.
