Fort Lytton National Park

Fort Lytton National Park's main attraction is Fort Lytton Historic Military Precinct, providing guided tours of historic Fort Lytton, a museum and re-enactments. It is open free on Sundays, Public Holidays and for special events. Access to the park at other times is by appointment only, and is subject to fees. The park was created in 1990 as Queensland's first historic national park. It initially contained only heritage-listed Fort Lytton, a colonial coastal fort that continued to operate as a military base until after the Second World War. The park was extended in 1999 to include Lytton Quarantine Station which occupied abutting land. The Quarantine Station is also heritage-listed, but is only open to the public on special occasions. The park is located in the Brisbane suburb of Lytton, in Queensland, Australia. It is 13 kilometres (8.1 mi) northeast of the Brisbane CBD near the mouth of the Brisbane River.
