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.
Discover out-of-the-way places like Emu Point and Middleton Beach. Take a break from the city and head to Little Beach and Elephant Rocks. Explore Albany's surroundings by going to Denmark (Anvil Beach, Harewood Forest, & more) and Cosy Corner Beach (in Kronkup). There's still lots to do: enjoy the sand and surf at Nanarup Beach and explore the wealth of natural beauty at Cable Beach.

For reviews, photos, maps, and other tourist information, refer to the Albany driving holiday planning app .

Brussels, Belgium to Albany is an approximately 23.5-hour flight. You can also do a combination of flight and car; or do a combination of flight, train, and bus. Due to the time zone difference, you'll lose 7 hours traveling from Brussels to Albany. Plan for warmer temperatures traveling from Brussels in January, with highs in Albany at 29°C and lows at 16°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 8th (Tue) so you can drive to Margaret River.
