With the abundant coastline at your fingertips, you can have a 'Whale' of a time. Literally! Albany is popular for whale watching enthusiasts and those that are just curious. During the cooler winter months May to October, you can sign up to take part in a Whale Watching Tour. You are sure to get up close and personal with one of nature's most beautiful creatures, and have an unbelievable experience that will blow your mind and leave you with amazing memories.
Why not get back to nature. In most places, this would mean hiking or camping or something similar. In Albany, this simply means getting to one of the city's markets to purchase some local fresh produce. Straight from the farmer to your shopping bag. Albany hosts a market on Saturday - The Farmers Market, and Sunday - The Boatshed Markets. You can relax and visit both in the one weekend. Fresh produce will never mean the same to you.
