Southern Wineries & Sights
Information not currently available.
Approximately 3½ Hours
Travel along Stirling Terrace and through downtown Albany to enjoy a mix of renovated historical buildings and the contrasting newer shops of the central business district.
Pass the Courthouse, rotunda and the old Post Office, which now houses the Albany Branch of the University of Western Australia. Drive past Middleton Beach and Dog Rock -- a large granite rock in the shape of a dog's head.
You'll visit Wignall's Winery, set among manicured lawns and outstanding gardens. Wignall's is the perfect setting to enjoy a wine tasting and listen to the winemakers tell you about their passion.
The Albany Wind Farm is home to twelve giant wind turbines. There is a walkway around the base of the turbines and lookouts offer sweeping views across Torbay to West Cape Howe National Park, and the city of Albany to the east.
Pause a moment at the Desert Corps War Memorial and Mt Clarence Lookout. The memorial is a recast of the original statue erected at Suez in 1932. The granite blocks are the originals from the Suez region and still bear bullet marks from the First World War.
A short walk offers 360-degree views over City of Albany, King George Sound, Michaelmas and Breaksea Islands, and Oyster Harbour at Emu Point.
Minimum age to participate in wine tasting is 18 years, accompanied by an adult aged 21 or older. Corkage policy: Wine purchased on this tour is exempt from the on-board corkage fee (offer limited to one bottle of wine per person). Tour does not operate on holidays.
