This building was built by the Australian Army during the Second World War.
It was used as barracks for the soldiers while they constructed and maned The Forts.
At that stage there was an open verandah facing the lane way which, over the years, has been enclosed.
The separate house to the east, now on a separate land holding, was The Comandants residence.
The Barracks were used to accomodate the Arcadian Surf Lifesavers after Cyclone Althea in 1971 as their property in Alma Bay was destroyed.
It has recently been updated and renovated to reflect the casual Magnetic Island lifestyle
