Kissing Point Fort: Things to do in Townsville

If you want to catch a glimpse of Townsville's history, a trip to Kissing Point Fort is a great place to go. This historical landmark at the end of the Strand dates back to the late 1890s. Kissing Point Fort, also known as Jezzine Barracks, was built as part of colonial Queensland's defence plan in 1870 and was designed to protect the north-western approaches to the harbour.
