Albany and surrounds today

Continuing the story of Albany and the surrounding coastline

Ellen Cove, Middleton Beach and Oyster Harbour

From Ellen Cove, a boardwalk climbs above the rocks of Point King and a walking trail follows the coast around into Princess Royal Harbour to Albany Port. This walk takes about an hour one way, and has great views of Middleton Beach, into Oyster Harbour, sweeping views across King George Sound, the Vancouver Peninsula and Princess Royal Harbour. The boardwalk has memorials to departed loved ones on many of the supports.

Dog Rock

The resemblance of the natural rock to a dog’s head was recognised thousands of years ago by Aborigines in the area who called the rockYacka”. A ‘collar’ has been painted on the dog in more recent times to make it obvious to drivers and pedestrians.

Mount Melville

The communications tower atop Mount Melville has two levels of observation decks, giving views across the town and Princess Royal Harbour as well as to the west and the north of the town.
