Albany – Road Trip
With pristine beaches, awe inspiring coastal views, fascinating geological features, and a wealth of activities to see and do, Albany is a winning destination for all.
For our caravan friends, the camping opportunities are unbelievably good.
Being the home for some of Western Australia’s most popular Family Caravan Parks, Coastal Free Camps, Farm Stays with a genuine warm country air, and quiet parks suited to the laid back nomads on their way through, the accommodation possibilities are extensive.
That being said, Albany experiences a large tourism boost during December and January, when WA schools close for the summer break. With its southern vista, cooling sea breezes, and balmy days, Albany is a siren call to WA locals looking to escape Summer’s heat. It is best to plan well ahead for the more popular caravan destinations.
When in Albany, there is no end to the activities awaiting for you. Marvellous restaurants and shopping opportunities abound. The scenic coastline features dozens of well sign posted, and advertised look outs, and geological wonders. The Historic Whale Museum is an informative and worthwhile outing, with many tourist stops on the road to the remote site.
No trip to Albany is complete without a visit to the wind farm which proudly frames the inland horizon, and if you time your visit well, one of the many available whale watching experiences is a must.
A deep Anzac history is linked to this wonderful town, as Albany was the 1914 departure point for thousands of service men and women. The Anzac Peace Park, coupled with the National Anzac Museum celebrates with nostalgia and respect this historically significant past, and honours our Anzac’s beautifully.
