Some people say this is the best "little beach" in Australia, we would have to agree. Simply stunning and well worth the drive to Two People's Bay

Emu Point in Albany is the perfect place for families to go swimming and picnicking. It’s an ideal spot for children thanks to clear, calm and shallow water, as well as grassy lawn and trees. Pack a picnic and enjoy a relaxing afternoon. There is also a large playground for younger children and Emu Point Cafe is right there for food and drinks.

History
The National Anzac Centre is located within the grounds of the heritage listed Princess Royal Fortress, one of only two pre-federation fortresses built to protect intercontinental trade routes. The convoys which left King George Sound in 1914 as interpreted within the National Anzac Centre chose Albany as a place to gather due to the defences and protection the Fortress was able to provide the fleet. If it was not for the Princess Royal Fortress, the convoys would never have gathered in such numbers in one position. Wander the grounds of the Fortress and experience what it was like to protect Australia’s shores at times of war. Explore original gun batteries, large coastal gun defences and the barracks where officers lived and worked. If you're lucky you may even catch a traditional gun salute!
