Fort Lytton National Park - Cities, Towns and Localities
Around 1880 it was determined that Brisbane required military protection against possible invasion. A fort was commissioned and built at Lytton near the mouth of the Brisbane River. This is the birth place of Queensland's military history. Brisbane at the time had a population of some 100,000 people.

The Fort is a well preserved example of a pentagon shaped fort surrounded by a moat. Most of the guns have been restored and are in working order and used for ceremonial occasions. The fort became a national park in 1988.

Organised tours are available, as are gas barbecues, however, no naked fires are allowed in the park. An information centre is available with refreshments and souvenirs available to purchase.

In addition to our listed online travel guide information, contact the local tourism visitor centre for your destination for more attractions, tours, local maps and other information. You can also contact the local Queensland Parks & Wildlife Service.
