Town of Denmark, Western Australia

Albany, Western Australia, 6330
City of Albany Western Australia
The breathtaking beauty of Albany's rugged coastline creates a fitting backdrop to a dramatic whaling, convict and settler history and a sensational south coast adventure.
This charming city marks the spot where the first European settlers set foot in Western Australia, and much of their legacy remains today with around 50 colonial buildings standing proudly as museums, galleries and restaurants. From convict prisons, whaling ships and taverns to quaint cottages and grand National Trust residences, you can take in almost two centuries of history on a 30-minute self-guided walk, following the Amity Trail.
Great Southern Region
Wineries & Vineyards
One of the largest of Australia's wine regions, the Great Southern, stretches from Frankland River in the north to Albany in the south, from Denmark in the east to Mt Barker and Porongurup in the west - an area covering close to 1,000 square kilometres of some of the most picturesque and unspoilt countryside in Western Australia.
From the first 5 acre planting of Riesling and cabernet sauvignon in 1967, the region's vineyards have grown to cover over 800 acres, with all the major grape varieties represented.
