The Basics

The modern visitor center provides information on travel and activities not only in Albany, but along the south coast and throughout Western Australia. The highlight of a visit is a virtual-reality film that takes you on a scenic “flight” along Albany’s coast, but you can also pick up a free map and Albany Dining Out guide; find out about Albany’s best beaches, wineries, or whale-watching spots; or get recommendations on where to eat, drink, or shop in the city. The center has a well-stocked souvenir shop, where you can purchase local art and handicrafts, as well as guidebooks and travel essentials.
