Historically, this may be the most significant site on the island. It’s a gun encampment, one of the seven that were set up during WWII to defend Australia against bombardment by warships. This one is the only preserved battery of the original set. In addition to the guns that you can still see here there are also tunnels, railways, and the remains of old defence structures.
Though guided tours are possible, self-guided walks tend to be more popular.
You can arrive here by train from the settlement. The ride costs AUD 29 for the train and the tour, or just AUD 20 for the train ride.
