Welcome to the official website of the Fort Scratchley Historical Society Inc.

Fort Scratchley is owned by the city of Newcastle (CN) and staffed by volunteers from the Fort Scratchley Historical Society.

We are always seeking new members to join us and have many ways that you can get involved.

The accuracy of the information contained within this site has been made possible by close liaison with the Society’s Committee of Management and past members of 113 Field Battery, Royal Australian Artillery, who have served at Fort Scratchley.

We trust that this site is beneficial to members of the society, sponsors, historians, researching students, military buffs, as well as the general public – both those who have visited our Fort and those who might be planning a visit. We welcome you to come and experience something truly special!
