This morning, embark on a full-day exploration of the oldest colonial settlement in Western Australia, Albany. We’ll begin with a visit to the Historic Whaling Station, where you can view an intact whale processing factory and fully restored whale-chasing ship. Heading back into town, we’ll explore the Brig Amity, an 1826 convict ship that tells the tale of the first European settlement of the west coast of Australia, and the oldest surviving house in the state, the Patrick Taylor Cottage Museum, built in 1832.
Enjoy some free time to explore the town and have lunch at your leisure before heading to the award-winning National ANZAC Centre, which uses multimedia and interactive technology to tell the stories of and pay tribute to the Anzacs. The Centre looks out across King George Sound, offering a spectacular and symbolic view of where the convoys gathered and left. We’ll take some time exploring the Centre and its surroundings before transferring back to the town centre for a free evening.
