The breathtaking beauty of Albany's rugged coastline creates a fitting backdrop to dramatic whaling, convict and settler history and a sensational south coast adventure. This charming city marks the spot where the first European settlers set foot in Western Australia, and much of their legacy remains today with colonial buildings standing proudly as museums, galleries and restaurants. The whaling station museum tells fascinating tales of Albany's whaling industry and you can take a cruise to meet whales up close. World-class wine, food, fishing, surfing, swimming, diving, hiking, four-wheel-driving, camping and other activities are all within minutes of town.
