Spend the day at the beach
Albany Western Australia is home to a stunning coastline and with beautiful beaches to match. Think crystal blue water and white sand, it’s not a summer in Albany without spending a day at the beach. We highly recommend visiting Little Beach and Two People’s Bay to enjoy turquoise blue and reclusive length of the beach to walk.

Step back in time
Albany has a vast and interesting history that you can spend days of your summer holiday delving into. Something fun to do is walk the gangplank and step back in time aboard the Brig Amity, a replica of the vessel that carried settlers and convicts in 1826. See what life was like aboard a convict ship and learn how the expedition forged peaceful relations with the local Aboriginal Minang Noongar people.
