Previously named Fort Macaulay, this location was once a military fortress guarding the coast of Victoria alongside Fort Rodd Hill as part of the Victoria-Esquimalt Fortress. 

Active from 1878 to 1956, Fort Macaulay was the longest-serving component of the Victoria- Esquimalt Coast Defence Fortification System. It was declared obsolete in 1956.

The park is now popular among dog walkers and rock climbers who climb at Fleming bay.



Know Before You Go

Macaulay Point can be accessed from Fleming Beach, or alternatively, there's street parking at the end of Clifton Terrace off Munro Street.


The paths are a mix of paved, gravel, and dirt and this walk can generally be managed by wheelchair if it's not too muddy.
