During our 90-minute Tunnels and Gunners Tour, an experienced volunteer guide will lead you through a set of demilitarised fortifications surrounded by coastal bushland, including tunnels off limits to the general public. The tour concludes at the Headland Park Artist Precinct, which is home to a thriving community of painters, potters, sculptors and photographers.
Tickets are $10 per adult, $7 per child (16 and under) and $7 per concession holder (incl. pensioners and students). In addition, family passes are available for $20 and include tickets for two adults and up to two children or concession holders. Note: Online bookings are essential.
Subject to guide availability, we also accept private bookings for groups of at least 15 people. To request a private group tour, complete our enquiry form.
Although this is an all-ages tour, people under 18 must be accompanied by an adult.
The tour may contains stories and images and/or visuals of deceased people.

Due to COVID-19, this volunteer-run tour has been temporarily suspended...
Our priority is to limit the transmission of the virus and ensure the health and safety of our visitors, volunteers and staff. Harbour Trust parklands will otherwise remain open daily. We will review the situation regularly as advice evolves and look forward to welcoming back our volunteer tour guides in early 2021.
