besides a magnificent view you can picture all the WW1 ships positioned awaiting collection of troops and horses in 1914/1915, the memorial lookout at the War Museum pin point the anchor points for the ships in King George Sound, it is a lovely meandering drive around the sound to take in the beautiful sights and pristine blue water.
This view is spectacular . You would never tire of it. From the lookouts you can see the entire Sound, and any ships in it. Amazing indeed.
King George Sound is the outer harbour and makes up the bulk of the water area around Albany with Gull Rock national Park to the north and Torndirrup National Park to the south. There are numerous beautiful beaches and a number of interesting islands.The whole area is as pretty as it gets.
On a sunny day it could be compared with the whitsundays in Qld. Just stunning. (Albeit a lot colder) Very very pretty place on a nice day. Do the board walk there are a number of spots for good photos.
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.
