The North Fort Tunnel Tours are a guided tour which explore underground tunnels and gun emplacements which were instrumental in the Defence of Sydney during WWII.

Conditions: Tour includes bush tracks, steep stairs and underground tunnels. A moderate level of fit- ness and reasonable mobility is required and visitors must wear enclosed footwear and wet weather gear if required.

Cost: $10 adult, $7 child/concession, $20 family (two adults and up to two concessions). Cash / EFTPOS only. Bring your own picnic lunch.

Bookings: On site at North Head Visitor Centre, North Fort, North Head Scenic Drive, Manly.

Tour Duration: 70 minutes

Getting there by car: Drive along North Head Scenic Drive, through Parkhill Archway and past round-about. Continue for approx 2 kms. The entrance to North Fort is on your left and signposted. Follow the driveway through the stone wall to the car park inside. The Visitor Centre is next to the car park near the stone wall.

Parking in the National Park outside the Fort costs $5.00 per day

Getting there by Public Transport: There is a problem between Manly Wharf and North Fort, the bus only has a very limited service on Sundays and appears to stop 2 kms short of North Fort.
If needing/wanting to come by public transport please contact Elizabeth 02 94893603 we may be able to arrange transport from Manly wharf/transport hub.

For anyone thinking of walking from Manly it is a very long steep uphill walk

Cafe? for people not interested in a picnic there is Bella Vista cafe? outside of North Fort. Great views bookings suggested – 02 8966 9779 Mains from $24 for a beef hamburger and fries to $35.00. Beer$8.00 per glass; wine $9-10 per glass Coffee $4.00

RSVP needed so I can indicate to North Fort how many people we are bringing, tour numbers are limited and it is also a public open day. Also need to know who is coming so can tell you where to meet for the picnic and wet weather arrangements. Elizabeth 02 9489 3603 or earoberts@bigpond.com
