There is so much to do at Fort Scratchley Historic Site. Enjoy a stroll around the site to soak in the history, taking in the breathtaking views, enjoy dolphin or whale watching with a picnic or immerse yourself in history and undertake a guided tour of the site and through the amazing underground tunnels.
