Gaze across Princess Royal Harbour with a view to King George Sound and, in the distance the expansive Southern Ocean. As you journey along the Torndirrup Peninsula this vista sets the scene. Imagine for a moment, the spume of spray and the playful leap of a whale as it makes its way along The Amazing South Coast on a long journey north. Today the whale travels safely uninterrupted on its path.
Albany’s role in the Australia’s whaling story comes to life on this tour at Albany’s Historic Whaling Station at Discovery Bay. While there meet our friendly native animals in the Animal Wildlife Park. Or, you can wander the pathways and boardwalks to view native plants and the enhanced wetland environment in the Regional Wildflower Garden. Climb aboard the famous whale chaser and marvel at the enormous whale skeletons on display. Relax with refreshments and an exceptional view over the ocean, reflecting on the significance of whale hunting in the past, and recognition of the value of whale watching today.
