Middleton Beach to Princess Royal Harbour
Walking: From Middleton Beach Holiday Park take a stroll along the boardwalk to Point King Lighthouse.
Driving: Take Marine Drive with its numerous lookouts and view points of King George Sound.
Take the Mount Clarence turnoff and drive through the Avenue of Honour to reach the parking area near the top. (elderly and mobility impaired may drive to the top)
Mount Clarence is the highest point in Albany and the home of the Desert Corps Memorial which looks out over King George Sound, the assembly point for the WW1 convoys.
Turning left again at the lower turnoff of Mt Clarence will take you to the Forts, a restored WW1 defence establishment for the port and the memorial for the US submariners, quite an interesting walk.
Travel east along Lower King Road to visit King and Kalgan Rivers, Nanarup Beach and Two People's Bay. Nanarup Beach is a beautiful swimming and fishing beach, great for families or just relaxing.
Both Nanarup Beach and Lower King River are popular fishing spots and have free public gas barbeques.
Along the way keep your eyes open for Willowie Game Park, Marron Farm and Suncrest Orchard (in season).
Choose from a wide range of water activities such as Whale Watching cruise (seasonal) or a scenic trip around the harbour.
Kalgan Queen Scenic Tours specialises in history and wildlife and operate daily except during June, July and August.
In winter and spring, witness our amazing marine wildlife from whales to seals. The Albany Visitor Centre can provide additional assistance and information about tours.
If fishing is more your style, then you are spoilt for choice in Albany, just ask one of our friendly reception team.
