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.
Step out of the city life by going to Greens Pool and Middleton Beach. Your itinerary includes some good beach time at Little Beach and Emu Point. Change things up with these side-trips from Albany: Cheynes Beach (in Waychinicup National Park), Singlefile Wines (in Denmark) and Cosy Corner Beach (in Kronkup). There's still lots to do: explore the striking landscape at The Gap and Natural Bridge, don't miss a visit to Albany Wind Farm, examine the collection at Albany's Historic Whaling Station, and pause for some photo ops at Desert Mounted Corps Memorial.

To find photos, other places to visit, more things to do, and other tourist information, use the Albany sightseeing planner.
