The core sites within the fortification sites are Middle Head (inner and outer), Georges
Head except the WWII sites, Bradley’s Head, South Head sites above the cliff top,
Steele Point, Henry Head and Bare Island. These are sites of high significance but also
with potential for interpretation, visitation and which demonstrate the key aspects of the
story of how Sydney and Australia was fortified.
