‪I would really recommend this tour. It cost us $8 dollars each, and I can honestly say it was the best attraction we visited during our time over here. Our volunteer tour guide was very knowledgeable and interesting in the way he conducted the tour. The leaflet and website don't really do the actual visit justice. We did it really just for a tourist thing to do, but left feeling entertained and also educated in many things about what happened there during the war. Thank you our tour guide.‬

‪What started as an informative tour, turned out to be an awful experience for a young teen who was on his way out of the tunnels for some fresh air.

My family witnessed a volunteer tour guide named SUE attack a young boy, with an audience of over 20 people. This child had done nothing wrong, and was immediately set upon with full force. He could not speak once the attack had ceased, he could not even nod, he was visibly terrified. The tour guide then berated him with "can you not talk! Answer me! What is wrong with you? Stand over there! Don't move!" finishing by laughing and rolling her eyes. He hid around the corner, clearly anxious and very distressed, not knowing why he had been confronted by an adult in such an awful manner.

Sue resumed her informative speech, only to spot him clearly upset, by which she responded with humiliating him AGAIN, in front of this large group of strangers, stating "why are you so upset? I should be upset dealing with people like you!" and once again laughing.

I am disgusted by what I have observed today. If that child had of not been separated from his parents, I highly doubt this bully would have attacked him in the fashion she did. He was humiliated in front of a crowd of 20+ strangers for trying to leave the tunnels, of which he clearly wasn't comfortable being in. No adult should bully and humiliate a child like this. If I heard someone speak to my children like this I would throttle them. This is blatant disrespect. Volunteer or not, nothing gives you the self-appointed right to attack someone, clearly observe they are unable to defend themselves, and then use this to your advantage to humiliate them further. Horrendous. This woman SHOULD NOT be in contact with children, period.‬

‪Lead by our volunteer guide Peter, he explained the different guns, their placement, down thru the tunnels & how they were used. 1hr long. A lot of stairs down into tunnels, no walking sticks allowed, just the handrail. Carpark to where tour starts is up to 5mins uphill along a wide concrete path.‬

‪This was a wonderful tour of a very historic site. Set up during the early parts of WW2, this gun battery was designed to defend Perth in case of attack from the Japanese. The battery comprises a series of tunnels linking the main gun emplacements. The tour is very informative and the (volunteer) guide that we had had a very detailed knowledge of the site and a quirky sense of humour. There are a number of sets of narrow stairs to negotiate but we didn't find them all that difficult and nor did our 9 and 7 year old granddaughters that we had with us. In addition, some awesome views up and down the coast and out over the Indian Ocean. A must visit site!‬

‪Fantastic for anyone who loves their history - we were lucky to come across it as we had family in the area. Great to see the original tunnels of the battery and how they would have worked during war time. A good informative tour by clearly passionate volunteers. It's a shame it's only open one day a week, but I can understand why! ‬

‪I grew up in Perth and lived here on and off for 35 years and how did I not know about this place? It's a little piece of history, the tour was great and the guide was very knowledgable and passionate about the guns, history of the tunnels and the connections to the wider history of World War II. It was fantastic to see how little old Perth was connected to a momentous time in history. Definitely join the tour. Well done Leighton Battery Guns!‬

‪Had a great couple of hours here, with one of them under the guidance of Ken Thurston, their entertaining and educational guide.
A true hidden gem and if you want to know more swing by for the tour.
The only negative I have is the extremely limited hours of operation (Sundays 10:00 - 15:00), but knowing it is staffed by volunteers does help explain it.
Not for people with mobility disabilities as the tunnels are all accessed by stairs and the surface is uneven, though recently paved in the major areas.‬

‪Attended the tour with my parents and my 6 year old daughter. We all really enjoyed the tour. Great to hear the history and go through the tunnels. Would recommend going for a tour. ‬

‪The tunnels have been well maintained by and enthusiastic group of volunteers. The guide was excellent - full of information. He had a sense of humour and a good clear voice ( for people like myself who is hearing impaired) The tunnels themselves were an interesting warren of passageways. The explanations of how guns operated were interesting. The price of only $8 entry for adults was good value for an hour's tour.
YOu could feel the commitment enthusiasm and passion of these volunteers.‬

‪Unusual and interesting World War 2 installation. In constant renovation and improved since my last visit a few years ago. ‬
