Travel Tips for Albany
The Coastal Boardwalk From Middleton Beach
From Middleton Beach you can walk the boardwalk up the hill which follows and looks down on the harbour shore. At some stages you are well above the harbour and can get magnificent views of Princess Royal Harbour and King George Sound. If you are lucky you may see a whale. As you continue the walk into the town centre take time to admire the local landscape of native wildflowers which look spectacular during the late winter / early spring flowering season.
Natural Bridge..other features
This photo was taken just a couple of minutes walk from Natural Bridge. Marcha is standing on some kind of fissure in the rock, where strong air comes up from down below...result, the photo below with Marcha's hair literally standing on end!

We arrived in Albany on day 4 of our Western Australian trip, we had driven from Pemberton and with some side trips travelled 274k.
The first thing we saw was a wide main street with a view of the sea, a very pretty town
