Event description

Description

The Kangaroo Bluff battery was built in 1884 to stop enemy vessels from shelling Hobart Town and to support similar batteries at Domain and Battery Point. The pentagon-shaped fort includes cannons, ditches, tunnels and underground chambers cut from solid stone. The battery was declared an Historic Site in 1970 and is now a public reserve that provides sweeping views of the western shore and the Clarence coastline.
