    old-farm-albanyThe Old Strawberry Hill Farm Albany – was first established in Albany which was then known as Frederick’s Town, in 1827. It has become popular as a heritage site with much to interest those who enjoy looking as historical sites.

    It is in the care of the National Trust who seems to be working on a very small budger,  and there is a need to have an injection of finance to improve on the maintenance of the very old buildings.  Sadly they are not allowed to serve what was once very popular, namely Devonshire Teas read more…

     

     

    anzacMore importantly, LEST WE FORGET, there is a huge ANZAC memorial statue, known as the  Desert Mounted Corps Memorial in memory of the  Australian Light Horse Brigade and the New Zealand Mounted Rifles together with the Inperial Camel Corps and the Australian Flying Corps who, left Albany to fight a losing battle, never to see their homeland again. They lost their lives in Egypt, Palestine and Syria many of whom died at Gallipoli. His force were jointly known as the ANZACS since they represented both Australians and New Zealanders.

    naturalA visit to Albany is not complete without seeing the wonder of “Natural Bridge” and “The Gap”, which is part of the Amazing Albany’s rugged Rainbow Coast. Now upgraded to allow access by more people including those in wheel chairs. There is far more to see that can be captured through the lens of a camera, however, that said, the wonders of Natural Bridge and The Gap offer wonderful photographic opportunities.

    Most visitors to Balneaire Seaside Resort want to know what is worth seeing and where to go first, especially if they have limited time available. We always direct them out on Frenchman’s Bay Road everything is within 30 to 40 minutes drive and where you can see so much in just a few hours. Everything worth seeing is  very well sign posted read more…

This brought to an end about a century of whaling in Australian Waters.

    BBQ facilities are available for families visiting the historical Whale World  and who want to do their own thing for a meal. There is also a children’s theme playground read more…
