Founded as a military outpost in 1826, Albany is the oldest town in Western Australia, just barely gaining this title by being settled two years earlier than Fremantle and Perth.
Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Albany: Denmark (Lights Beach, Greens Pool, &more). And it doesn't end there: examine the collection at National Anzac Centre, take some stellar pictures from Convoy Lookout, enjoy the sand and surf at Frenchman Bay, and take an in-depth tour of Albany's Historic Whaling Station.

For photos, traveler tips, reviews, and tourist information, refer to the Albany online sightseeing planner.
