For Your Safety

  • Please do not climb up on the walls or earthworks or out into gun openings. Georges Island is a fortification that features steep masonry walls, surrounded by a ditch up to 9 metres deep. These areas are especially dangerous when wet.
  • Young children should be under close supervision at all times.
  • Be aware of steep inclines and watch out for low doorways, uneven steps, and floors.
