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.
Kick off your visit on the 2nd (Mon): contemplate the long history of The Albany Convict Gaol & Museum, then kick back and relax at Emu Point, then enjoy the sand and surf at Little Beach, and finally admire the striking features of The Church of Saint John the Evangelist. Get ready for a full day of sightseeing on the next day: take in the dramatic natural features at The Gap and Natural Bridge, see majestic marine mammals with a dolphin and whale watching tour, then tour the pleasant surroundings at Middleton Beach, and finally pause for some photo ops at Desert Mounted Corps Memorial.

Plan my day in Albany using traveler tips and tourist information provided by Inspirock.

Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia to Albany is an approximately 10.5-hour flight. You can also do a combination of flight and bus. Expect colder temperatures when traveling from Kuala Lumpur in September; daily highs in Albany reach 21°C and lows reach 9°C.
