Established in 1936, this remnant military complex, strategically positioned at Sydney Harbour's northern entrance, was part of a vast defence system during World War II. The fort's battery, armed with two 9.2 inch calibre guns and a network of 200-meter-long underground tunnels, speaks volumes of its historical significance.\n\nImmerse yourself in the secrecy and strategy of wartime efforts as you explore the Plotting Room, a crucial underground bunker more than eight meters deep. This once top-secret facility was central to controlling engagements with enemy ships, its details shrouded in mystery and vital to the Defence of Sydney. Today, restored by the Harbour Trust volunteers, the Plotting Room stands as a testament to the ingenuity and resilience of those who served.\n\nThe North Fort area, including the Army Barracks, is a rich tapestry of military history and natural beauty. The Defence of Sydney Tour offers an opportunity to marvel at heritage gun emplacements and the military tunnel complex, understanding the role of the servicemen and women in a bygone era. This stop is not just a visit; it's a journey through the layers of history that have shaped this strategic point, now peacefully resting amidst bushland​​​​​​​​.\n\n"}]},{"address":"Memorial Walk","placeId":"EihNZW1vcmlhbCBXYWxrLCBNYW5seSBOU1cgMjA5NSwgQXVzdHJhbGlhIi4qLAoUChIJC53OzGirEmsRduBYjhECEggSFAoSCX1_FVWwqxJrEbC_MhZofQEF","location":{"longitudeDelta":0.1576617659073171,"latitudeDelta":0.09219986310369421,"latitude":-33.81804771063817,"longitude":151.2975226},"media":[{"type":"img","content":"https://firebasestorage.googleapis.com/v0/b/freeguides-prod.appspot.com/o/assets%2Ftours%2FaKajN7q1r9NG3V4LuzX9%2Faustralias_memorial_walk_logo.jpg?alt=media&token=d9d9617d-01cc-432e-b56a-f1b9b3c259b2"},{"type":"text","content":"# Welcome:"},{"ttsForStop":false,"type":"audio","content":"https://firebasestorage.googleapis.com/v0/b/freeguides-prod.appspot.com/o/assets%2Ftours%2FaKajN7q1r9NG3V4LuzX9%2F01_welcome.mp3?alt=media&token=a11ec5e2-f939-4df3-a3ef-2e8206092f5f"},{"type":"text","content":"The Colonial Era:"},{"ttsForStop":false,"type":"audio","content":"https://firebasestorage.googleapis.com/v0/b/freeguides-prod.appspot.com/o/assets%2Ftours%2FaKajN7q1r9NG3V4LuzX9%2F02_the_colonial_era.mp3?alt=media&token=36b34dad-c5b7-4025-b991-d8312ce07166"},{"type":"text","content":"# 1st World War:"},{"ttsForStop":false,"type":"audio","content":"https://firebasestorage.googleapis.com/v0/b/freeguides-prod.appspot.com/o/assets%2Ftours%2FaKajN7q1r9NG3V4LuzX9%2F03_1st_world_war.mp3?alt=media&token=b86f593a-6356-41f1-b744-d4dd4e7514cd"},{"type":"text","content":"# 2nd World War:"},{"ttsForStop":false,"type":"audio","content":"https://firebasestorage.googleapis.com/v0/b/freeguides-prod.appspot.com/o/assets%2Ftours%2FaKajN7q1r9NG3V4LuzX9%2F04_2nd_world_war.mp3?alt=media&token=62ed6b73-3cbd-4ee1-b02c-9feab58e9462"},{"type":"text","content":"# Post 2nd World War:"},{"ttsForStop":false,"type":"audio","content":"https://firebasestorage.googleapis.com/v0/b/freeguides-prod.appspot.com/o/assets%2Ftours%2FaKajN7q1r9NG3V4LuzX9%2F05_post_2nd_world_war.mp3?alt=media&token=c1e51cbc-2085-4927-a4a8-a1f75b0dd09e"},{"type":"text","content":"# International Peace Keeping:"},{"ttsForStop":false,"type":"audio","content":"https://firebasestorage.googleapis.com/v0/b/freeguides-prod.appspot.com/o/assets%2Ftours%2FaKajN7q1r9NG3V4LuzX9%2F06_international_peace_keeping.mp3?alt=media&token=86dc7b47-2d42-4a0f-8d89-2380c510043b"},{"type":"text","content":"# Lone Pine:"},{"ttsForStop":false,"type":"audio","content":"https://firebasestorage.googleapis.com/v0/b/freeguides-prod.appspot.com/o/assets%2Ftours%2FaKajN7q1r9NG3V4LuzX9%2F07_lone_pine.mp3?alt=media&token=cd41be35-e94b-4427-b2f8-c5dc8c1d9819"},{"type":"text","content":"# Defence of Sydney:"},{"ttsForStop":false,"type":"audio","content":"https://firebasestorage.googleapis.com/v0/b/freeguides-prod.appspot.com/o/assets%2Ftours%2FaKajN7q1r9NG3V4LuzX9%2F08_defence_of_sydney.mp3?alt=media&token=36be23c8-a3a4-4869-a2df-67442630c45d"},{"type":"text","content":"Stroll along Australia's Memorial Walk at North Head Sanctuary, a pathway that honours the dedication and sacrifices of those who served in the defence of Australia. This serene walk, ensconced in coastal bushland, features five major monuments, each representing significant periods in Australia's military history: the Colonial Wars, World Wars I and II, post-Second World War conflicts, and peacekeeping missions.\n\nAs you walk, take a moment to reflect on the pavers, each inscribed with names and messages of servicemen and women from the Navy, Army, Air Force, and Merchant Navy. This is more than just a path; it's a narrative of courage and commitment, etched into the landscape of Manly. The monuments, thoughtfully designed, offer a place to rest, reflect, and absorb the depth of Australia's military heritage.\n\nCommenced in 1999 and dedicated in 2012 by the Governor of New South Wales, this 250-meter walk, including a special Gallipoli monument, is not only a tribute to history but also a personal connection to the past, as seen in the stories of individuals like Privates JW and TR Miles. As you proceed, let the tranquility of the bushland setting and the solemnity of the memorials guide your thoughts and offer a moment of peaceful contemplation.\n\n"},{"type":"text","content":"> **Media from Royal Australian Artillery Historical Company**"}]},{"address":"Barrel Display","placeId":"ChIJ87itHOerEmsRvYJF5Q_7FA0","location":{"longitudeDelta":0.1576617659073171,"latitudeDelta":0.09219986310369421,"latitude":-33.81726851063788,"longitude":151.2986419},"media":[{"type":"place","content":{"place_id":"ChIJ87itHOerEmsRvYJF5Q_7FA0"}},{"type":"img","content":"https://firebasestorage.googleapis.com/v0/b/freeguides-prod.appspot.com/o/assets%2Ftours%2FaKajN7q1r9NG3V4LuzX9%2Fscrnli_24_11_2023_09-58-36.png?alt=media&token=01ae4950-c03c-464a-933f-4422adf5efdd"},{"type":"text","content":"Welcome to our next point of interest on the Manly Coastal Walk, The Barrel Display."},{"type":"text","content":"Have a look and even take a photo.\n\nNow then, shall we carry on our journey?
