Albany

On our second day in Denmark we went for a drive to Albany. Before getting into the town, we explored the amazing coast.

What a spot to go fishing.


 
 


 
 


 
 


 
 


 
 


 
 


Houses overlooking Frenchman Bay.


 
 


 
 


 
 


 
 


 
 


 
 


 
 


 
 


 
 


 
 


 
 


 
 


 
 


Banksia in various stages of development.


 
 


 
 


The Town hall in Albany:


 
 


The town is quite interesting as it is hilly. Lots of old buildings are still standing.


 
 


 
 


 
 


 
 


 
 


 
 


 
 


 
 


In this building Nonna’s Italian restaurant proved a good spot for lunch. I had whitebait and a Greek salad and Lesley had fish and chips with a glass of local rosé wine. I wasn’t even aware that there is wine growing along the south coast of WA, but we have seen many vineyards in our travels.


 
 


 
 


 
 


 
 


 
 


This is one of the more unusual buildings – it houses the University of Western Australia, Albany. http://www.albany.uwa.edu.au/


 
 


It is possible to drive along the harbour where the grain silos dominate the landscape. We also saw facilities for woodchips and fertiliser.


I enjoyed the day in and around Albany. The town is quite a centre in the area and apart from the old town also has modern areas with shopping complexes.
