Historically famous for being a destination of punishment and exile or penalty for crimes in Sydney and Australia, the Fort Denison has also flourished as a site for defence establishments and as a major tourist attraction. It is situated along the Sydney Harbour. It houses a museum and a complex for hosting ceremonial and professional receptions. Tourists are transported to the Fort through regular ferry services at the Circular Quay. The tour within the Fort includes the facility of guides and tour organizational services such as the National Parks and Wildlife Services. Over time, for better ease of maintenance of the Fort sections and to make more accommodations for tourists, only the 200mm small muzzle loader guns were retained and the large firing units were removed and restored in the museum. The Fort also maintains a Harbour Navigation Facility equipped with the most modern tracking and security systems for safety of the ferry services and the tourists.

Visitors can wander around the fort at their leisure on a self-guided tour, or take a guided tour of the island and its museum, including a trip up the iconic Martello Tower. You can even experience the firing of the 1 o’clock cannon.
