    We loved seeing the waves and feeling the wind. The area is accessible to all and was very clean. We’d highly recommend visiting whilst in Albany.

    The main reason my wife and I wanted to go to Albany was to look at the National ANZAC Centre as I am a retired Vietnam Veteran who has a passion for military history and my wife had a great uncle who was killed on the 25 April 1918 during the second battle at Villers Brettoneaux.

    This centre has been beautifully built and provides an opportunity for people to experience the war from an individual soldiers perspective.

    On entry you are given a card that represents on of the many thousands of servicemen that departed Albany during WW1 and throughout the centre their are stands where you place your card and it tells the story of that individual and shows you documents relating to him. All in all a very worthwhile experience.

    You need to allow yourself at least 2 - 3 hours to do it justice so make sure that you allow that time, otherwise you may miss out on some history.

    After the Centre there is an opportunity to go on a walking tour of the gun emplacements lead by a volunteer guide who takes the time to explain everything in great detail. This walking tour is free and is strongly recommended. You can do the walk on your own but you will miss out on the commentary which is very well put together.

    There is a Gift Shop where you can buy many things related to WW1 and oter stuff at a reasonable cost and if interested and know of a relative that served in WW1 and left from Albany on either Convoy 1 or 2 then you can use the data base to read their story.

    Perfect blue seas, huge rocks and a very relaxing spot.

    A great imagination and skill level to create some wonderful art work. These sculptures are strange, varied and amazing to see. Placed throughout your drive, they are fun to spot and even more interesting to look at.

    This is a great centre to get information about activities in Albany and were super helpful to us when we could not contact the owner of our accommodation to get the code for the key box, due to the booking being made pre-covid and the number changing. The staff were able to find the owner and get the code for us. Thank you!

    A winter visit to spot whales. Stayed at a delightful guesthouse (Beach House at Bayside). Close enough to Albany CBD eateries and attractions.

    Wonderful corner to spend the afternoon with. A playground to keep the kids happy and a cafe nearby for the daily intake of coffee. Lots of picnic sports and proper trash bins for cleaning up after. Parking is limited but there are a few within walking distance

    The Memorial is builton a hill overlooking the Harbour and is a tribute to those that served in WW1 and who left for the Middle East from Albany.

    It is extremely well put together and one of the horses is supposed to be Sandy, the only horse to be returned from the Middle East.

    Well worth a visit.

    You should allow a few hours when visiting the park to make sure you see all its highlights. It's also great for short walks as well as longer hikes.

    We parked at the south entrance of the beach where a short road of about twenty meters starting from Perouse Rd leads to a tiny car park with toilet. The beach is a few steps below. A very white beach, with compact sand, practically deserted, which continued endlessly towards the north for kilometers. The sea water was transparent and invited to swim while at the southern end there were a couple of people fishing from the rocks. A very nice beach in the Frenchman Bay.

    Definitely worth a visit when in Albany. Very reasonably priced ($6 per adult, our young children were free). Lots of information and photos available and the friendly guy who we paid at the door offered to give us a bit of a tour but we declined.

    Even our 3 year old son loved it, which we weren’t expecting. He enjoyed role playing in the cells and the kitchen and laundry and actually didn’t want to leave.

    This small ship has a lot to offer in the way of history and its so well displayed. Worth going 'down' into the ship once aboard, although low head room, there's a great history told on how people sailed in years gone by. Recommend viewing.

    Fantastic display of Albany's history here. Naval history is told so well. Lots of museums and artefacts to look at. It was a cold blustery showery day when we visited but weather did not deter us from walking around.

    To reach the small car park, take the unpaved Misery Beach Rd and then turn onto the very short Bald Head Rd. From the car park begins an uphill stretch of the boardwalk that proceeds through dense vegetation and ends in a section of hard granite from which you begin to coast. From here the view of Salmon Beach is excellent. Proceeding with a mixture of packed limestone paths and boardwalks, as well as stretches on hard granite, the path continues for 12.5km return till Bald Head. As it was already 1PM and the sun was very strong, we decided to follow only part of the trail that proceedes along the narrow ridge of the Flinders Peninsula, but we can say that the view along this part of the trail was breathtaking. If we have the chance to return to Albany we will make the completion of this trail a priority. A really fantastic trail.
