What you will love in the neighborhood

Albany is a well regarded destination for surfing, fishing and diving; in fact all beach related activities. The impressive National ANZAC centre is close by and well worth an extended visit. In spring the famous Western Australian wild flowers explode and relaxed bushwalks searching out local treasures is rewarding. In winter, the whale migration brings Humpback and Southern Rights past our doorstep and often mothers and calves rest up close to shore at local beaches. The Great Southern region has two distinctive cool climate wine regions within 30 minutes drive. The Stirling range national Park is World Heritage listed biodiversity hot spot and a beautiful destination for bushwalks of varying intensity. It is little over an hour from Albany.
In town, you are 10 minutes walk from the white sands and clear, blue waters of the local beach. Maybe another 5 minutes further on you will come to a little cafe and beauty strip. There is a pub cum cafe right on the beach, a tapas bar, a beautifully renovated original beach house which has become a stylish tavern, an extremely popular locals' cafe and an excellent fish and chip shop. There is a hairdresser, beautician and sauna also in this area. Right next door to the house is a fish and chip shop which also speicalises in Southern style 'comfort food'.
The main town centre is a 20-30 minute walk or a 5 minute drive.

Additional information
