Half-Day Albany History and Highlights Tour
Enjoy a 3.5-hour guided tour of the National ANZAC Centre and Heritage Park. Your guide will accompany you as you walk through Albany’s historic precinct and view Middleton Beach from the promenade.
The history of the Great Southern region is revealed in stories during your guided tour at Mount Clarence and the Padre White Lookout. Discover Albany’s role in Australia’s ANZAC story at the National ANZAC Centre. Enjoy a coffee break at Middleton Beach, visit Patrick Taylor Cottage and Albany's Convict Gaol and see the Brig Amity at the Museum Precinct.
Your tour includes hotel pick-up and drop-off.
Enjoy courtesy pick-up from your accommodation before your 3.5-hour guided tour begins at the Princess Royal Fortress historic precinct. At the National ANZAC Centre interactive displays will take you on an intimate journey of a participant of the war. Under the shade of trees planted to remember fallen soldiers, the Avenue of Honour leads to the Memorial of the Desert Mounted Corps. The dawn service is Padre White’s story. See the view that the departing ANZAC Troops had before they sailed onward to war; for some of them, the last vision of homeland.
Curving around Mount Adelaide, Breaksea Island comes into view and stories of the construction of the lighthouse and its connection to the ANZAC narrative are revealed. At Middleton Beach we pause a moment to absorb the vista of the ocean and perhaps, if lucky, a glimpse of sheltering whales and calves. Journeying into the city centre, we stop along the way to visit Patrick Taylor Cottage and Albany's Convict Gaol and learn of the contribution it made to the social life and nourishment of the early community.
Your driver will be happy to return you to your accommodation.
