We had a great experience today myself, partner and Our boy Stephen. Vic aka Derek 😂 was our tour guide and he was absolutely fantastic. He gave us the history in a unique fashion.

Wonderful experience and excellent services to see how a Fort used to work and run. Great volunteers. Wonderful staff. Very helpful with the how things operate and work. Lovely to see them still recovering and restoration works still going on. I can't wait to go back to see it again. Lovely place and lovely to see magic happen.
