Middle Head, Sydney, Australia

What an interesting place to visit and photograph. I have always wanted to check this place out. I first saw this place in the Australian movie "Stone". The day started out fine but was overcast by about lunchtime.

So if you live in Sydney and looking for interesting places to photograph. I highly recommend that you get down there. You won't be disappointed.

Will definitely revisit to explore more of the tunnels and get more interesting shots. Here are some of the shots from my visit.

Here are some interesting facts about Middle Head.

The first battery was built in 1871 and was designed by James Barnet, a colonial architect. The fort was built on a strategic location and received many additions until 1911. It formed part of a network of 'outer harbour' defences. They were designed to fire at enemy ships as they entered the harbour. The whole area is linked by an extensive network of underground tunnels, ancillary rooms, gunpowder magazine and a disappearing gun emplacement.
