Albany Wind Farm, Albany

(4.6/5 based on 550+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Very interesting place to visit...It's fantastic to feel that wind from the ocean and know it is helping out with the environment...feeling very small against the vanes and towers though ! 
  • The Albany Wind Farms are impressive but do yourself a favour and take the 10 minute walk to the lookout..simply stunning views of the coastline, this would be a perfect spot for whale watching 
  • Its just that a wind farm! Apart from the spectacular landscape or the area and if there is nothing left to do when visiting Albany then give it a try! It's ok though.
