Historic Garden Island Tour

The Naval Historical Society of Australia will take Trust members on a guided walking tour of the historic sites of Garden Island which are normally off limits to the public.

The tour will operate in all weather conditions.

A light morning tea/refreshments will be served at the conclusion of the tour.
