King George Sound is the harbour on which the town of Albany sits. It is one of the finest natural harbours in Australia, far more impressive than Fremantle to the north. From here the first ANZACs left for the Middle East in 1914, bound for glory in World War I. It's also suited to water sports.
We visited on a relatively wild but sunny day. A truly beautiful place. So many beautiful birds about, lots of flowers and shrubs and the amazing colour of the water.
King George Sound is a stunningly beautiful area and Albany a most interesting town where you could spend many days. There are stunning beaches, views and coastline. Well worth the trip down from Perth.
It is quite easy to spend a lot of time here just staring into the ocean and watching the waves - the scenery is stunning and mesmerising. Take your time to enjoy it. I got here mid morning and it was fairly quiet with ample parking available. And the best thing - it's free.
The views of the "Sound" are spectacular, especially from the top of Mt Clarence. One of the best natural harbours in the world. No wonder it was selected to "ferry" our Diggers to North Africa and Gallipoli in WW1. Throw a line in and catch a King George Whiting....tasty fish.
Being a local, there are so many wonderful places around King George Sound, too many to mention. It's a massive area consisting of over 100 square km, and is protected on most sides. First of all, there's the Sound itself. Best views are from the Marine Drive lookout and Mt Clarence lookout, and also from Mt Martin or LImestone Head... 更多
Before I got here on my drive around Southern W.A., Albany and King George Sound were just places on a map. The area is so beautiful, I was quite jealous of the people who live there.
This is an experience if you go around the drive from Middleton Beach and see the view of the ocean it is stunning. When you approach Albany and see the entrance to Albany it will take your breathe away.
