Make the most of your visit to The Rocks Albany – Albany truly is an amazing city!
With its origins as Western Australia’s earliest settlement with a strong maritime, agricultural and whaling history as dramatic as its rugged coastline, Albany takes you on a spectacular journey back in time and nearer to nature. Albany is the very spot from where European settlers and convicts first set foot in Western Australia, and where the Australian and New Zealand Army Corps (ANZACs) departed on their tumultuous journey to Gallipoli.
Today, Albany is a favourite amongst seasoned travellers and those wishing to experience a unique environment, the freshest organically grown food and wine, and….where some of the last letterboxes before Antarctic meet with the jewels of Australia’s Great Southern coast. Where silence is broken by the rush of the wind and the crashing of the waves on long pristine beaches and cliff faces. Where the tall trees meet with the undulating farm land and the ranges throw their gaze across vineyards. Where whales frolic in the bays and harbours upon their annual migration.
Albany is a four hour drive south of Perth along the Albany Highway in Western Australia. The regional city is situated along the south coast amidst the Great Southern Region with easy access to Denmark, Walpole, Mt Barker, Frankland, Kojonup, and the Porongurup and Stirling Ranges.
