Book Now - Albany ANZACs & Whalers

WINTER DOWN SOUTH SPECIAL
The history of the Great Southern is revealed in stories as we start our guided tour at Mt Clarence and the Padre White Lookout, and discover Albany’s role in Australia’s ANZAC story at the National ANZAC Centre. At the National ANZAC Centre interactive displays will take you on an intimate journey of a participant of the war. Under the shade of trees planted to remember fallen soldiers, the Avenue of Honour leads to the Memorial of the Desert Mounted Corps. The dawn service is Padre White’s story. See the view that the departing ANZAC Troops had before they sailed onwards to war; for some of them, the last vision of homeland.
Curving around Mt Adelaide, Breaksea Island comes into view and stories of the construction of the lighthouse and its connection to the ANZAC narrative are revealed. At Middleton Beach we pause a moment to absorb the vista of the ocean and perhaps, if lucky, a glimpse of sheltering whales and calves.
Today they travel safely; uninterrupted on their path. Albany’s role in the Australia’s whaling story comes to life on this tour at Albany’s Historic Whaling Station, Discovery Bay.
Lunch at the Whaler's Galley, then climb aboard the famous whale chaser to experience life on board an actual whaling ship, and explore the movie, photos, artefact galleries and marvel at the enormous whale skeletons on display. You haven’t seen Albany until you’ve visited the Historic Whaling Station, the only experience like it in the world! This tour provides reflection on the significance of whale hunting in the past, and recognition of the value of whale watching today.
Be sure to pick up your gift and memento 'End of an Era'.
