Albany Heritage Park was established by the City of Albany in 2010 to integrate various historical, natural, cultural and recreational assets located on Mount Clarence and Mount Adelaide.
The Park incorporates a range of significant pre- and post-European cultural and historical attractions – many with military connections – including Princess Royal Fortress, the Desert Mounted Corp Memorial, Padre White Lookout, and the Avenue of Honour.
The centenary of the First World War, and Albany’s place in the foundation of the Anzac identity, have focussed local, state and national attention on the site, leading to creation of a National Anzac Centre within the pre-existing Princess Royal Fortress.
Albany Visitor Centre has been housed in Albany's old railway station since 1994.
The centre provides information and a booking service for visitors to the area's stunning tourist destinations. Albany features pristine beaches, whale watching, wineries, wildflowers and national parks.
Staff with a commitment to tourism and a proven track record in customer service provide free information and advice. Staff manage all accommodation bookings within the centre, providing a seamless service to the public. This provides a central one-stop-shop for advice and bookings.
For bookings phone 9841 9377, or for information 9841 9290.
