What you can expect

The town of Albany in WA, sits on a beautiful coastline but holds a secret history of whaling. During this half-day Albany Whale Story Tour, you’ll travel along Princess Royal Harbour to see breathtaking views of King George Sound before stopping at Albany’s Historic Whaling Station at Discovery Bay. Step inside a whaling ship and confront a tragic whaling history and industry during interactive exhibits and movies that tell the tales of the past.

Spend some time strolling through the exhibits and be blown away by the giant whale skeletons on display. There will be time to relax with tea/coffee and cake overlooking King George Sound. Your tour guide will take the scenic drive home through Tornidirrup National Park where the crystal clear seas pound the West Australian coastline.
