Things to do in Albany and surrounds
1. Head to the Albany Farmers Market on a Saturday morning
Local producers sell fresh fruit and vegetables together with organic meats, ostrich, venison, yoghurt cheeses, olive oils and flowers. Musical entertainment adds to the lively atmosphere.
2. Spend the day at Middleton Beach and Ellen Cove
Go swimming, picnicking or enjoying the playground facilities. Relax under the Norfolk pine trees or in one of the cafés, soaking in the village atmosphere. The Ellen Cove Boardwalk meanders around the coast to the port and is the perfect viewing location for whales between June and October.
3. Sample Oysters near Emu Point
The calm, shallow waters of Emu Point are ideal for children and popular for fishing. Nearby Oyster Harbour is used for oyster and mussel farming and is home to the Albany Rock Oyster, which you can purchase direct from the farms.
4. Check out Albany Wind Farm
Check out its twelve wind turbines along a great walk trail just six kilometres from town, perched on some spectacularly rugged coastline.
5. Take a drive to Two Peoples Bay Nature Reserve
Well-known for its small colony of noisy scrub birds, visitors can explore the interpretive centre or take a leisurely stroll along the squeaky white sands of the beautiful Little Beach or Waterfall Beach.
6. Dive the former HMAS Perth II Dive Wreck
Scuttled in 2001, it provides a prolific wonderland for divers and snorkellers to explore different species of fish and marine life.
7. Explore Torndirrup National Park
Here you will find some of Albany’s most famous attractions. Natural Bridge is a rock formation sculptured into a bridge, shaped by the powerful swells of the Southern Ocean. Nearby is The Gap, a 24 metre drop where the ocean rushes into a large cavern in the rocks. Wildflowers form a colourful blanket along the cliffs and seals can often be seen playing in the waters below.
