Guided tours are available for both individuals and groups, with one of the highlights being a holographic film presentation. The tour shows the process of extracting gold from ore and tells the story of the battery’s working life. LISSNER PARK Lissner Park is home to the First World War Digital Heritage Trail and the heritage-listed Boer War Memorial. The Ghosts of Our Military Past is a nod to the city’s Kennedy Regiment being one of the first to mobilise for deployment to Thursday Island in World War I. The park also features two German field guns, captured on the Western Front. AROUND THE WORLD There is a lot to offer visitors a little further out of town. An area spanning the size of Tasmania, the hive of agricultural activity gives visitors the chance to discover the rural side of life in the Outback.
