Tourist Attractions in Albany
The south coast of Western Australia is famous for its beautiful beaches and interesting attractions. In no particular order we have selected a variety of tourist attractions that are our Albany favourites! These amazing attractions are just a hop, skip and a jump away from the affordable hotel-style accommodation at ibis Styles Albany, located right in the heart of town.
Albany’s main beach, Middleton is the closest beach to the town centre and is one of the best places to escape to for swimming, long walks, picnics and possibly whale watching. Did you know that Middleton Beach was named after Captain Middleton in 1934? An ancestor of Kate Middleton now married to Prince William!
The Gap is a new accessible viewing platform allowing visitors to stand 40 metres directly above the seas, allowing those brave enough to view the waves crashing against the granite coastline. Just a 15-minute drive from ibis Styles Albany, this is a tourist attraction you don’t want to miss out on!
