Hilltop views from the fort take in Townsville harbor, the Strand beach, Pallarenda Beach, Cape Pallarenda, and all the way to Magnetic Island. Visitors interested in military history can hike to the former gun emplacements that guarded over the city and, in the surrounding Jezzine Barracks, walk through bunkers that were built in case of attack. Public artworks also honor the area’s Aboriginal heritage, and you’ll also find the Army Museum of North Queensland here. For those specifically interested in Townsville’s military history, a specialized tour is a great choice. These tours typically also take visitors to such sites as Royal Australian Air Force Townsville Museum and the Black Hawk Memorial.
