National Anzac Centre
Opening in late 2014, this superb museum remembers the men and women who left by convoy from Albany to fight in World War One. Excellent multimedia installations provide realism and depth to the exhibitions. There is a profound melancholy in the museum’s location overlooking the same expansive body of water the troops left the ship from.
Iconic to Albany, The Gap allows visitors to stand 40 metres directly above the surging seas, allowing those brave enough to view the true power of mother nature. The new raised pathways gives safe access to the stunning views and will provide many photo opportunities!

Mount Clarence provides panoramic views over the harbour to the south and the Porongurup’s to the north. Be sure to visit before the 28th April 2019 to see The Field Of Light: Avenue of Honour, an immersive art installation illuminating the Avenue of Honour at Mount Clarence. Even if you do miss the installation, Mount Clarence is still worth a visit for the breathtaking views.
