Albany

— 3 nights
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.
Change things up with these side-trips from Albany: Denmark (Greens Pool & Singlefile Wines). There's still lots to do: see the interesting displays at National Anzac Centre, don't miss a visit to Albany Wind Farm, contemplate the waterfront views at Lake Seppings, and take an in-depth tour of Albany's Historic Whaling Station.

To see other places to visit, reviews, where to stay, and other tourist information, read our Albany vacation planner.

Traveling by car from Esperance to Albany takes 5 hours. Alternatively, you can do a combination of flight, train, and bus; or take a bus. In September, plan for daily highs up to 21°C, and evening lows to 9°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 13th (Mon) early enough to fly back home.
