A modern metropolis of glassy skyscrapers, waterside boulevards, and lush residential neighborhoods, Perth sits on the edge of the Swan Coastal Plain.
Get some cultural insight at Fremantle Prison and The Perth Mint. Visiting Dolphin & Whale Watching and Caversham Wildlife Park will get you outdoors. There's lots more to do: enjoy the sand and surf at Cottesloe Beach, explore the activities along Swan River, take in nature's colorful creations at Kings Park & Botanic Garden, and get engrossed in the history at Revolutions Transport Museum.

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.
On the 12th (Sat), see the interesting displays at National Anzac Centre, explore and take pictures at Replica of the Brig Amity, and then kick back and relax at Greens Pool. Here are some ideas for day two: enjoy the sand and surf at Little Beach, enjoy the sand and surf at Cheynes Beach, and then take in the dramatic natural features at The Gap and Natural Bridge.

Before you visit Albany, use our trip planner to discover what you can do and see there.
