History of Fort Queenscliff
A History of Fort Queenscliff
James Tate has produced a detailed book on the history of Fort Queenscliff. It clearly shows the development of the fort from an open battery in the early 1860s and beyond. An important aspect of the book, is that it puts Fort Queenscliff into the wider context of defending Victoria in the 19th century – in other words why have a fort in the first place and why was it the shape and size that it is.
