Pengerang Battery is located just under 2 hours drive from Johore
Bahru past the Desaru resort junction. Follow the signs to Tanjong
Pengelih and head for the main jetty and ferry terminal at the
very end of the coastal road.
Note that you can no longer get to Tg Pengelih by the old coastal
road through Sungei Rengit, sadly access by this route is now
impossible due to major new development in the area.
you are coming from Singapore, it's far simpler
to take a 45 minute bumboat trip from Changi Point Ferry Terminal
straight to the jetty at Tanjung Pengelih in Johor.
Exploring this location will not all be a walk
in the park. Be prepared for jungle trekking and the risks that
may accompany it.
Take note: Pengerang's main 6"
gun emplacements and HQ are located on Bukit Pengerang itself
and is off limits to the public.
What is publicly accessible of the WW2 facility can be found directly
behind the Pengelih ferry terminal building on the small hill.
There are no designated paths up to, nor around this location.
What you will find here are the remains of Pengerang's searchlight
battery and garrison defences. Refer to the maps section to get
a better idea of Pengerang's overall WW2 layout.
for the historical ruins you find here, look and explore, but
please leave it as you found it
