Enjoy a panoramic drive through Albany and along the main street. Watch for Dog Rock and Middleton Beach and stop for photos at the Mt Clarence Lookout. Here you'll have spectacular views which includes Princess Royal Harbour, King George Sound and the Albany Wind Farm.

Next, you will travel along the Princess Royal Harbour shoreline and enjoy the coastline and scenery en route to Torndirrup National Park. Here you can walk to a lookout for glorious views of the 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 suspension bridge spanning the torrent. It's a thrilling vantage point.

Re-board the motorcoach and continue on to the Albany Wind Farm. Situated on the edge of a cliff overlooking the coast, this eco-friendly farm consists of twelve 1,800-kilowatt wind turbines, each 213 feet tall with enormous 115-foot-long blades. The wind turbines are the largest in the southern hemisphere. Take the pathway along the cliff that leads to a viewpoint. Look out over the coastline and your ship before heading back to the pier.

Notes:

Wear sturdy non-skid walking shoes. Do not deviate from marked paths during the walks.
