The Blow Holes

by imstress

The Blow Holes is a 1 km return walk from the carpark and there is a long flight of stairs leading down and takes about 20 mins to get there. It all depends on your luck whether you will see it blow. You will be walking over some rocks so sensible take extra care as the rocks maybe wet and slippery.

Blow Holes are a series of fissures in the granite rocks on the coast. When the tide is high, loud hissing noises could be heard and it will act like geysers when water is forced by large waves through the rocks.

Some Australian Native Flowers

by Mikebb

The Western Australian coastline is constanly subjected to strong winds blowing across the Southern and Indian Oceans. As a consequence the coastal flora is dominated by tough low growing shrubs which burst into brilliant flower for Springtime. Our visit was early August and due to the unusual warm weather some of the plants were commencing to flower, how lucky we were. In a few more weeks time the trails would be a mass of colour.

Albany, an Attractive Town and a Port.

by australia2

"Of historic importance."

Albany is situated near the south-west corner (bottom left) of the Australian continent. It was the first settlement in Western Australia. With its natural harbour it played a major role in the development of Western Australia in the early/mid 1800's.
Settlers heading for Perth and Fremantle would come ashore at Albany and travel north overland, approximately 450 kilometres to get to the Perth settlement on the Swan River.
Albany has a wonderful natural harbour, King George Sound, and the hinterland has developed into grazing and crop growing Primary Production. The area has many interesting natural geological features. Also during W W I all the horses to be used by Australia Cavalry Units in the Middle East were gathered from the interior of W.A. and shipped out through Albany.
A monument exists on a high hill paying tribute the soldiers and their mounts. The horses surviving the conflict could not return and with regret were left behind.
During W W II a large American Naval Base was erected there and an interesting display is worth a visit. (More information to come. )

"Albany Whale Museum."

On part of the "cutting platforn" is mounted a display of various skeletons of different whale types.
This is the mammoth "Sperm Whale".
The whaling industry has,of course long since ceased. This, in line with modern preservation principles.

When time permits I will put up some Albany video 'grab' pics.

AFTER A COUPLE OF NIGHTS IN ALBANY IT'S OFF FURTHER EAST TO THE LOVELY SEASIDE LIVING AND SURFING TOWN OF THE FRENCH NAMED ESPERANCE.
