Albany

Albany is located in the west of the Australian continent. The city was founded as the first penal colony in the west. Since the second half of the XIX century, the city has become an important port on the way from eastern Australia to Europe. Since the late XIX century, Albany has been the largest center of the whaling industry. After a ban on fishing that was introduced in the country, the last whaling station stopped working in 1978. Today many tourists come to Albany from July to October just to watch the whales. Guests of the city visit the museum, the exposition of which tells about the history of Albany and whaling. It is worth visiting the Torndirrup National Park and watching some interesting natural sites. For example, the natural stone bridge or rock rift. There are also many national parks on the coast and inland.
