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 Cheynes Beach and Cosy Corner Beach. Step out of the city life by going to Lowlands Beach and Nanarup Beach. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Albany: Denmark (Greens Pool & Anvil Beach). There's still lots to do: enjoy the sand and surf at Waterfall Beach, tour the pleasant surroundings at Little Beach, and explore the striking landscape at The Gap and Natural Bridge.

For reviews, photos, traveler tips, and other tourist information, you can read our Albany trip planner .

Vienna, Austria to Albany is an approximately 25-hour flight. You can also do a combination of flight, train, and bus; or do a combination of flight and car.
