This visitor centre is the endpoint for the Bibbulmun track as well as the Munda Biddi cycle trail. Above all, it has an amazing garden of remembrance. Beautiful roses planted.

The staff are great and helpful but the sign out side shows Whale Watching. Not Whale watching in June, this led to our worst experience in Albany. We went on tour from hell which was a cheap and nasty experience, seasick safari.
