Things to Do in Albany
Devoted to telling the story of the more than 40,000 ANZAC (Australian and New Zealand Army Corps) soldiers that fought in the First World War, the National Anzac Centre is one of Australia’s most important military museums. It’s housed in a purpose-built building in Albany Heritage Park.
From whale-watching cruises and spectacular coastal walks to colonial heritage sites and ANZAC war history, Albany has plenty to tempt travelers to the south coast. Albany Visitor Centre is the first port of call for visitors, offering up-to-date advice and information on the region’s many attractions.
Telling the story of Australia’s whaling industry and the Cheynes Beach Whaling Company—the last of the country’s whaling stations to close its doors, back in 1978— Albany's Historic Whaling Station offers insight into whale hunting, as well as the chance to explore onboard a real whale-chaser ship.
