  3. Fort Charles


The sign at Fort Charles' entrance reads, "In this place dwelt Horatio Nelson. You who tread his footprints remember his glory." Nelson kept watch here from 1779-1780. Those were the days when the British Royal Navy toasted at sunset to their Queen, raising their nightly 'tott' of rum high and chanting in unison, "To wives and lovers, may they never meet!" Take a guided tour of Fort Charles and you'll be treated to historic finds from its fortification days-cannonballs, artillery and the like. From here enjoy viewing the Blue Mountains on one side and the azure sea on the other.
