History Alive: A Journey Through Time invades Fort Lytton National Park for its 12th consecutive year in 2011.  History Alive is a multi-period re-enactment event presented by the Queensland Living History Federation. 

History Alive is a unique timeline event, with re-enactment and living history groups from the Roman Legions through to the Vietnam Era and everything in-between.  Our main arena plays host to 14th century tournaments and Military displays. Everyone is welcome to check out the living history encampments where you’ll see knights and ladies next to roman legionaries and WW2 soldiers alongside Napoleon’s men.  We also have a range of other activities provided by local and regional history groups.  

Come and immerse  yourself in the sights and sounds of times gone past in one of Brisbane’s best kept secrets.  

History Alive is held on the Queen’s Birthday Weekend in June, it goes off with a bang at 10am on Saturday the 11th.
