Held annually in June, History Alive: A Journey Through Time takes visitors through a time warp of epic proportions.

As the biggest multi-period re-enactment and living history event in Queensland, you’ll be able to see Roman gladiators and Vikings through to WWI and Vietnam War era Aussie diggers in the one place over two action packed days.

Hosted by Fort Lytton National Park, home of Queensland’s largest firing guns - a pair of original 64-pounders that were installed to defend Brisbane should the Russians invade in the late 1800s.

The arenas host 14th century tournaments where observers can cheer on their favourite knight; WWI and WWII battles; American Civil War soldier drills and Napoleonic stoushes.

Visitors can also step inside the living history encampments, where re-enactors live as their ancestors did. Whether that means cooking a 12th century meal over a fire or plucking a chicken for a colonial meal.

Over 400 re-enactors and living historians participate in the event to share their love of history with the people of Queensland.
