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 Albany's surroundings by going to Denmark (Elephant Rocks, Forest Hill Vineyard, & more) and Cheynes Beach (in Waychinicup National Park). There's much more to do: see the interesting displays at National Anzac Centre, tour the pleasant surroundings at Goode Beach, explore the striking landscape at The Gap and Natural Bridge, and have some family-friendly fun at GT Karting Albany.

For ratings, maps, photos, and tourist information, refer to the Albany road trip site .

Noumea, New Caledonia to Albany is an approximately 15-hour flight. You can also do a combination of flight and bus. You'll gain 3 hours traveling from Noumea to Albany due to the time zone difference. February in Albany sees daily highs of 29°C and lows of 16°C at night. Finish your sightseeing early on the 14th (Fri) to allow enough time to drive to Margaret River.
