The Gap and Natural Bridge

Iconic to Albany, winter is the perfect time to visit The Gap and Natural Bridge. The Gap allows visitors to stand 40 metres directly above the surging seas, the windier the weather, the better the view! The new raised pathways give access to the stunning views so be sure to pack your camera, as there are many photo opportunities.

Whale Watching

If you visit Albany between June and October you may be able to spot the magnificent creatures for yourself! The whales migrate during this time so keep your eyes peeled to spot them from land based viewing spots. If you don’t have any luck spotting them in real life, visit Whale World which houses displays and information about the whaling days as well as a skeleton of the last whale taken from the sea.

Step back in time

Step back in time and discover the historic town of Albany. The birthplace of the Dawn Service tradition, 38 ships escorts by six warships departed Albany bound for the Great War, eventually landing at Gallipoli.
