Jezzine Barracks

The Jezzine Barracks / Kissing Point / Garabarra redevelopment has been a $40 million partnership between Townsville City Council, the Queensland Government and the Australian Government.

The 15-hectare heritage precinct commemorates the military and Aboriginal heritage of the Kissing Point headland through 32 specially commissioned public artworks, extensive interpretive signage and the restoration of significant elements of the Kissing Point Fort complex. Large-scale landscaping works have also opened up the area for public use.
