The Wrights Hill Fortress Restoration Society regrets that it is cancelling all future Open days in 2020.

This is in view of the COVID 19 rules and restrictions on social distancing and limits on numbers of people at large events.

This will affect Queens Birthday June 1st, Labour Day October 26th and December 28th.

Our next major Open day will be ANZAC Day 2021.

We may be able to accept small groups of up to ten people for private tours from October.

Please make all enquiries through our website booking form.

Thanks for your continued support.

Please keep safe and well.
