A rock that's in the shape of a dogs head. Probably the only place in Australia (or the world??) you'd see a natural geological formation in this particular shape. Pretty cool

Yes indeed, it's a rock. But it's a rock that looks a bit like a dog! It's a good spot for a photo, and it's right in the middle of town. Find a spot to park first though. Don't be "that silly tourist" that pulls...More

A good (free) place to stop for a cool pic in Albany. There is also one of the biggest shopping centres in Albany next to the rock.

In years past many promotional photos of Albany featured this natural rock feature Now in a little lost within it's suburban surrounds Pity they didn't keep a bigger reserve around it Still definitely worth a photo

This is an area of many rock formations - The Natural Bridge and the Gap and DOG ROCK. Surprisingly very doglike. Looks like a buried dog with its head sticking out of the ground. Take a picture and move on.

This is a site you can easily drive past and view, however have a quick stop to take a picture. This feature is near a shopping centre. Dog Rock is in the middle of Albany on Middleton road.

Came across the rock which is located at the top entrance to Woolworths car park. If you use your imagination then I guess it resembles a dogs head but to be honest I have difficulty working out why it's a tourist attraction when there's so...More

Nothing much to see except for a huge rock in a shape of man's best friend! Can see for the fun of it.

We are not sure whether this sight actually merits a review, after all it is only a rock! Yes it does look just like a dog's head (and we did take a picture!!!). But when all things are said and done, is it a highlight,...More
