  • Are you into awe inspiring views and watching the awesome power of the Southern Ocean? Then this place is a must visit. Note: 4x4 track will be tricky when its dry.
  • So in love with you. Camping at Shelly Beach was just insane and romantic.
  • Spectacular views. Stunning beaches. BBQ facilities/toilets available
  • Spectacular cliffs and picturesque beaches are the highlight here. the view from the Shelley Beach Lookout is phenomenal and there are some great walking trails including the bibbulmun that intercept Shelley Beach, the lookout, and run over the ridges overlooking the beach linking you up to the 4WD tracks down to the Cape and Dunsky.
  • Great hang gliding and para gliding sites and beaches. Nature all around you.

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.
