Founded as a military outpostĀ 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.
Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Albany: Denmark (Harewood Forest, Greens Pool, &more). There's much more to do: examine the collection at National Anzac Centre, enjoy the sand and surf at Middleton Beach, admire the landmark architecture of The Church of Saint John the Evangelist, and stroll through Little Beach.

For where to stay, other places to visit, more things to do, and tourist information, refer to the Albany journey planner.
