A panoramic drive along Stirling Terrace showcases a number of Albany's superb Victorian buildings, including the courthouse, the rotunda and Old Post Office. Keep an eye out for Dog Rock -- a large granite formation shaped like a dog's head that dominates Albany's central business district.

Your first stop is at Torndirrup National Park. Walk to a lookout for glorious views of dramatic land formations called the Gap and the Natural Bridge. The Gap drops 78 feet to the raging sea while the Natural Bridge resembles a huge granite bridge spanning the torrent. It's a thrilling vantage point.

Next, you're off on a brief city sightseeing drive, which ends at the Mt Clarence Lookout. Form here, take in more spectacular views over Princess Royal Harbour, King George Sound and the Albany Wind Farm. In 1791, Captain George Vancouver claimed this part of Western Australia for the British Crown.

The National ANZAC Centre is a newly-built, multi-million-dollar museum designed to expound ANZAC legend. Your time here will be self-guided to explore independently, learning all you can about the Australia New Zealand Army Corps. You will also have time to visit the gift shop before you return to the pier.

Notes:

Wear sturdy non-skid walking shoes. For your own safety, do not deviate from marked paths during the walk at Torndirrup National Park.
