Kangaroo Bluff Historic Site at Bellerive is a gun emplacement and fort built in 1880.
In 1873, someone thought they spotted two Russian warships on the River Derwent. The gun emplacement and fort were built in 1880 as a result.
The battery guns were never fired in anger and today the site has been preserved as much for its picturesque location as its historic significance.
It is located 500m from the Bellerive Boardwalk and ferry terminal as well as Bellerive Oval.
