Look up as Sea Eagles often swoop down to catch a fish near the boat. Sometimes they see Dolphins and Seals as well.Listen to the poems of the Kalgan from you Captain as well as a full comentry on the history, Anzac, wildlife and so much more. You can learm more about Albany in four hours tha some locals do in a life time. Next into the Kalgan River which is said to be the oldest continually running river in the World.

Located within Albany’s heritage listed Princess Royal Fortress, the centre overlooks the actual harbour from which over 41,000 men and woman departed Australia for the Great War. Immerse yourself in the Anzac Legend and follow personal stories through state of the art technology, multimedia and historic artefacts. Prepare to remember, learn and explore.


ALBANY'S HISTORIC WHALING STATION 

Albany's Historic Whaling Station is the only experience of its kind in the world. The Cheynes Beach Whaling Company was the last whaling company to cease operations in Australia (closing in 1978).  Explore an intact whale processing factory and whale chasing ship - fully restored and ready for you to discover. The Historic Whaling Station opened in 1980 (known then as Whale World) - it is now home to an interactive museum on whales and whaling. The whaling factory guided tour, is an informative overview of the stations operations, and then discover the many additional exhibits at your own pace.

Torndirrup National Park.
