Up close to view these 16 structures compared to viewing them across the bay is amazing. We didn’t realise how big they are and how they work until we read the information boards. Take the time to read the information. The turbines tower is 65m...More

Interesting to find but was expecting a better view. We enjoyed the surrounding beaches more than the wind farm. Great initiative though to take advantage of that cold, southern wind.

This is the first place I visit every time that I’m in Albany. Nothing better than a walk all around the wind farm to recharge your battery after a long day. Stunning view of the ocean and definitely the perfect spot for a wonderful sunset....More

Interesting place,you get to walk right to the base of these turbines,get to see and hear them.Have only ever seen these wind farms from a distance before. Nice walking tracks along the coast as well as easily accessible lookouts

It's per car National park fees I think it's about $12 a day, if you're looking to visit a few National parks over several days you can get Park passes from visitor centres or tourist centres
