  • The lookout has great views over all of Albany and the coast, we walked past the first point to some of the outcrops on the other side facing towards the wind farm, the ground is a bit uneven in this ...  more »
  • I climbed right up the Tower and enjoyed the views on each side and each level. It's great to see the whole of the harbour, area, etc. The steps are safe and good. Took good photos.  more »
  • On a clear day has views over the Sound and the town of Albany. Worth a short visit. Parke the car then 20m walk.  more »

  • I really like the Mt Melville Lookout. It is simple and well placed to give you an awesome view of Albany and the surrounding area. Toilets at the base of the tower are an extra bonus. The parking is easy, some shady spots. The steps up the tower are easy and each of the three platforms or levels have ample room to walk around. A very safe activity for the whole family. There are walks in and out of Mt Melville, if walking is your thing and chairs strategically placed to sit and enjoy the views. Carparks are easily accessible by a normal car. Give it a try. Outdoors is always good fun. If you happen to be in Albany on New Year's Eve, there is a great vantage point to see the fireworks display. Albany really has a lot to offer and this is one of those notable places to visit.
  • I love this place! Go up the 'spark plug' by all means but also follow some of the paths at the top on the harbour side of the mountain for amazing views over the city and further, from huge slabs of granite, and if you're lucky, wildflowers and king skinks! Very special place.
  • Great views of the surrounding area. Facilities lacking a bit with an opportunity to pull more tourists up the hill to enjoy the views and buy a coffee. Would be a great hike although we were slack and drove instead.
  • Short climb to top of tower for great views of Albany and beyond. Windy and cold at the top! Benches and toilets available at base. There is short walk on boulders around the tower. Highly recommend
  • What a amazing place! Love it.

Where to stay in Albany

While virtually free of large hotels, Albany does offer visitors a vast selection of guesthouses, motels, and rental apartments. Many of these are conveniently within the city center, perfect for sightseeing. If you prefer to stay closer to the beaches and a bit farther from the center, the suburbs of Middleton Beach and Emu Point are the places to go. Also on the coast, the Collingwood Park area is the best choice for golfers, with the 18-hole Albany Golf Course just around the corner.
