RvTrips' review

02 Feb 2017

Kissing Point Fort was built on the headland of Townsville to help protect the harbour.  It had a bunker system, gun placements and canons strategically located in this elevated position.

This area is a significant site for both the Australian military and local Aboriginal People, and is now open to the public featuring coastal boardwalks, artwork, traditional plantings and park lands.

Kissing Point has a number of interpretive signs alongside pieces of equipment explaining the significant elements of the Kissing Point Fort complex. Very interesting and well worth a visit.
