These are but a few of the many opportunities visitors have to connect with history each year at History Alive: A Journey Through Time.

Brisbane’s best kept secret, the iconic Fort Lytton National Park, is the perfect backdrop for such a unique event where more than 500 re-enactors and historians portray and display almost 10,000 years of history. In 2016, these passionate hobbyists and volunteers shared their love of history with more than 4,000 visitors from around Queensland and the world.
