Albany

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.
You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Greens Pool and Cosy Corner Beach. Change things up with these side-trips from Albany: Cheynes Beach (in Waychinicup National Park), Denmark (Monkey Rock & Anvil Beach, Nullaki Peninsula) and Lowlands Beach (in Lowlands). There's more to do: take in the dramatic natural features at The Gap and Natural Bridge.

To see other places to visit, reviews, traveler tips, and other tourist information, refer to the Albany trip planner.
