The history and sights of King George Sound have an eeriness about them......so much is related to this exceptional part of the South West and in fact Australia's history - tragic shipwrecks; boys and men leaving Australian Shores for War; Trade and Commerce; Boating and Fishing; Disease and Quarantine; the list goes on. If you want to find out more information about this diverse part of the ocean and landscape, then take one of the King George Sound cruises (which leave from the harbour in Albany) to enjoy commentary, nostalgia, scenic views and time-out enjoying the ocean......I can highly recommend the two hour King George Safari Cruise. Mark is sure to fill you in on much of the surrounding beauty, history, islands, features, industry etc associated with KGS.

King George Sound is on Albany's doorstep. It is one of the world's great natural harbors. It has played a prominent part in Australian history. King George Sound was the point of departure for the first ANZACs, leaving for the Middle East and Europe. It was the last of the Australian continent that many ANZACs were destined to see.

Being a local, there are so many wonderful places around King George Sound, too many to mention. It's a massive area consisting of over 100 square km, and is protected on most sides.

First of all, there's the Sound itself. Best views are from the Marine Drive lookout and Mt Clarence lookout, and also from Mt Martin or LImestone Head if you don't mind a walk. You'll see large ships, yachts, and at the right time of the year whales also come here. In the distance, there's the beautiful Michaelmas and Breaksea Islands, the latter which has a lighthouse.

Then around the sound, there's the Frenchman Bay area, with many beautiful and quiet beaches between Flinders Peninsula (location of Bald Head) and Vancouver Peninsula (location of Point Possession). From the sound is a small entrance into Albany's natural harbour, Princess Royal Harbour. Then at the base of Mt Adelaide is Middleton Beach, which stretches all the way to Emu Point and Oyster Harbour. Finally on the north side there's Mt Martin, Ledge Beach, and the Gull Rock area. All of these places are worthy of exploration and visiting. A true scenic and natural wonder that helps make Albany what it is.

Visited on Sunday 24th November and it is still as amazing as I remember from my previous visits to Albany. Plenty of lookouts to see it from different angles.

This is a great place to take in the brilliant views of the Southern Ocean and some exercise by walking the 5-6 kms stretch which has dense vegetation and spectacular views of the ocean. It is a must visit for those going to Albany.

Enjoy some great panoramic views of the surrounding coastal areas and Albany.

On a clear day, ensure you bring your camera for some great photography and your binoculars for some whale spotting.

King George Sound is on the Southern coast of Western Australia. For many troops going off to war, King George Sound was the last they saw of Australia. .Albany had whalers residing here as long ago as 1801. The military outpost at Albany was founded in 1826. King George Sound is one of the finest natural harbours in Australia, comparable to Sydney Harbour. King George Sound was charted by Captain George Vancouver RN in 1791.

I went on this boat tour of the sound. The Captain was a very funny man and kept us all entertained and well informed the whole time. I recommend it.

Albany has so many lovely places to see, that it is a photographers delight Any where along the coast there are the opportunities of viewing the Lord's handy work. When the Lord was handing out accolades, he spoilt Albany rotten.
