  • The Princess Royal Forts, opened in 1893, is the site of the first Australian Federal defense post. The original army barracks, both buildings and infrastructure, have been maintained entirely by volunteer endeavours until 2014 when the National ANZAC Centre was built nearby. The barracks house military displays as well as everyday items in situ, depicting life of the servicemen who passed through here to serve overseas.
  • Great place and well curated. Need a couple of hours. Tour of military building starts at 10.30am. Gun firing at 1pm
  • So much to see and do it could take you days to explore
  • Very like! 好好玩,好美麗的地方。 軍人辛苦你們了!!

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.
