Fort Hamilton, Hamilton

4.3
Gaze over the Hamilton harbour from Fort Hamilton, a fort originally built in the 1870s to protect the harbour from possible attacks by American forces. Today it offers wonderful views of the bay and surrounding landscape. Bring some food and have a picnic among the wonderful mixture of tropical plant life that lines the maintained lawns. Relax in the sun to the sounds of a ceremonial bagpipe performance, followed by an informative presentation on the fort's history.

  • The historical moat, battlements, tunnels, and wedding venue are a great place to visit and explore.  more »
  • We came here in mid November and had this place to ourselves. You walk up a little hill from the parking lot below. We didn't see any exhibits when we were there but still an interesting free stop.....  more »

  • Well maintained grounds and great for outdoor play for kids.
  • Great green space, ideal for picnics and views of Hamilton harbour. Take the stairs down to the drained moat to see a diverse landscape of bamboo trees, exotic plants, lizards and more.
