Founded as a military outpost in 1826, Albany is the oldest town in Western Australia, just barely gaining this title by being settled two years earlier than Fremantle and Perth.
Kids will enjoy Cheynes Beach and Middleton Beach. Get a sense of the local culture at National Anzac Centre and Albany's Historic Whaling Station. Take a break from Albany with a short trip to Cosy Corner Beach in Kronkup, about 32 minutes away. And it doesn't end there: enjoy the sand and surf at Nanarup Beach, don't miss a visit to Mt Melville Lookout, stroll through Emu Point, and pause for some photo ops at Desert Mounted Corps Memorial.

To see traveler tips, other places to visit, ratings, and more tourist information, refer to the Albany day trip planner .

Melbourne to Albany is an approximately 8-hour flight. You can also do a combination of flight, train, and bus; or drive. Due to the time zone difference, you'll gain 2 hours traveling from Melbourne to Albany. Traveling from Melbourne in December, expect nights in Albany to be about the same, around 13°C, while days are slightly colder, around 26°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 21st (Fri) to allow time to drive to Denmark.

Denmark's population of over 2,700 people grows to several times that number during tourist season because of its natural wonders.
Get outdoors at Greens Pool and Lights Beach. Singlefile Wines and Forest Hill Vineyard are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Step out of Denmark with an excursion to Tree Top Walk in Walpole--about 58 minutes away. There's still lots to do: enjoy the sand and surf at Anvil Beach, delve into the lush surroundings at Harewood Forest, stroll through Lowlands Beach, and look for gifts at Bartholomews Meadery.

A low-rise, laid-back town of approximately 4,500 inhabitants, Margaret River serves as an ideal local base to explore the surrounding wine region.

Get out of town with these interesting Margaret River side-trips: Augusta (Cape Leeuwin Lighthouse & Jewel Cave). Spend the 26th (Wed) on a tasty journey with a beer tour and tasting. It doesn't end there: enjoy the sand and surf at Cowaramup Bay and have some family-friendly fun at Amaze'n Margaret River.

Explore Busselton's surroundings by going to Yallingup (Gabriel Chocolate & Smiths Beach) and Wise Wine (in Eagle Bay). There's more to do: take a leisurely stroll along Busselton Jetty.
