(600+ reviews on the web)
Landmark Tourist Spot
Experience the power of the wind at Albany Wind Farm, a wind power station featuring 18 turbines that produce over 80 percent of Albany’s electricity. The wind farm, with its long boardwalks along the rugged cliffs and panoramic views of the ocean, is a popular stop for travelers from around the world. The site’s turbines are the largest in the Southern Hemisphere, designed to withstand the strongest winds likely in the region, and incorporating special lightning protection. The farm is located at an elevated position, approximately 80 meters (262 ft) above the Southern Ocean, which allows the turbines to exploit the local wind conditions to the maximum. Plan your visit to Albany Wind Farm and a wealth of other attractions, well-known and undiscovered, using our Albany trip itinerary maker.

  • Great to see and be so close to them, there are so many different ways to view them from scenic look outs to walking along tracks underneath them  more »
  • There was options if you would like to walk a longer trail or not. The longer trail says around 925km though. The wind mills looked just amazing and huge. Definitely worth heading down and have a walk...  more »
  • Worth a trip! Very quiet place so you can take your time to walk around. Facilities were well maintained and there were toilets.  more »

  • I thought the view is pretty cool, I don't really get the complaints that people have against windfarms near the beach. You can't really hear them until you are right below them.
  • Interesting if you want get up close to a wind turbine. You can stand right at the base of one and get views over the farm. Plenty of interesting information provided.
  • Tough run out & back along Bibbulmun Track with heavy sand tracks & limestone rocks plus a yellow-black 2+m Tiger snake. But the scenery view very worthwhile from top of high sand-dune lookouts.
  • It was incredible to be able to get so close and walk around the base of the huge turbines. The paths and interpretation trail are excellent, and you get an amazing view of the whole farm. Free too - definitely recommend.
  • amazing wind mill spinning non-stop during our stay there. it will be great if this "clean" energy can be made available in all the places in the world as it poses a great sight as well.
