Albany is a popular resort town located on one of southwestern Australia’s most beautiful stretches of coast. It lies on the northern shore of Princess Royal Harbour – one of the world’s best natural deep-water harbours. Built soon after the first convicts arrived, Albany’s oldest buildings include the Old Gaol, the Old Post Office and the Old Farmhouse. In the area around Albany discover the rugged coastline of Torndirrup National Park, forests, and arable and sheep farms.
