Learn about Albany's pivotal role in Australian history, from the early colonial days through the First World War, with this guided tour across the city. A local host shows you around the seaside sights while you learn stories of whalers, warships, explorers, and entrepreneurs who helped to forge the country.

The tour begins at the York Street historic district, where your guide explains the city's origins as a coastal fort meant to warn off the French. Learn about the town's strategic position on the King George Sound as you move on to the National ANZAC Centre, then Patrick Taylor Cottage, an example of a home first established in Western Australia, and then enjoy morning or afternoon tea overlooking the waters of Middleton Beach.

Next, learn how the experience of Australian, New Zealander, and Canadian soldiers in World War I shaped the identity of Albany and the country as a whole. A visit to the National ANZAC centre takes you back to the wartime days, and a visit to the beautiful Padre White Lookout on Mount Clarence lets you pay homage to the fallen at the reputed site of Australia's first Dawn Service. Finish the tour with a return ride and a deep appreciation for this peaceful community's remarkable role.
