    What an amazing place. Location is special and beautiful. You get a soldier's card from WWI. You learn about him and others as they tell a the story visually and audibly. A must stop. We're so glad our cruise ship stopped in Albany.

    Amazing at sunset and easy walk to hear the thunderous crash of the waves and see the natural beauty of the rocky landmarks. Awe-inspiring and humbling.

    Wow! We didn’t expect this.

    First of all we arrived at 4PM and the lady behind the counter told us that it would take 4 hours to see everything but we could come back for the next day. Great service.

    This place is very interesting to learn more about the history of Albany. Yes it is confronting at times, but in a good way, to learn.

    A big bonus is the location and surrounding views.

    Easy little walk up to 2x lookouts for sunset or a level walk underneath one of them. Take a jumper, it's windy!! Lots of parking available and toilets too.
    Pretty cool to see the size of the wind farm and how much energy it generates.

    Staff were so helpful and friendly. They were very proactive, approaching customers to ask whether they needed help or were happy to browse. The member of staff who helped us gave excellent recommendations about how to spend our day. We followed her advice and were not disappointed. The actual centre is clean, light and welcoming.

    I thought was a lovely tribute. A really impressive monument on the tallest hill in Albany. Plenty of parking available along with some great views.

    Beautiful place to relax and look at the stunning views. Great for families as there is a great playpark. Lovely walk along the beach and a lovely cafe/restaurant too.

    What a delight! Historic, interesting. We had informative help from knowledgeable volunteer Trish. What good work all those involved have done. Snow brig Amity replica reminds visitors of the great feats of our forbears in making Australia what it is in the 21 century. Take the kids! .

    Middleton Beach is the closest beach to Albany's town center. This beautiful beach is popular with locals and visitors alike; it's popular with young and old. Midleton Beach is around 4 km (3 miles) from the center of the center of Albany. It has a jetty, which is good for fishing and strolling. A dual use path leads to the Port of Albany, it takes from 2 to 4 hours. There are several eateries around the beach. From June to October, the lookout is useful for observing the annual whale migration.

    Well worth spending a day checking out this NP. Just out of town - it’s rugged, beautiful and packs a real punch. So easy to access.

    We enjoyed our morning wandering through the sites around the fortress. The walks through the wildflower was and birds was pleasant and the exhibits interesting.
