We are just a short stroll from the Albany Town Centre.

To find us from the centre of town, head down York Street toward the harbour, turn right at the last roundabout and head west for 350 metres along Stirling Terrace (which changes its name to Festing Street). We are on the left at 3 Festing Street, just past Parade Street, immediately after the Old Gaol building.

Albany is a major port on the south coast of Western Australia, approximately 400 kilometres south of Perth, the capital of Western Australia.  It is picturesque, nestled between Mount Clarence and Mount Melville, looking over Princess Royal Harbour and out to King George Sound.  It is the gateway to the Great Southern Wine Region and its cool, maritime climate is most refreshing.


The views from the Vancouver Apartment

North: Directly across Festing Street is a row of attractive pastel coloured pre-WW1 cottages.  In the middle distance you can see the Mount Melville Parklands, and in the far distance, shimmering in the haze, the peaks of the Porongurup and Stirling Ranges.

South: You can see the masts and rigging of the Brig Amity, and just behind it is the scenic Princess Royal Harbour.  In the distance you can enjoy panoramic views of the Vancouver Peninsula and the rugged hills of Torndirrup National Park.

East: Just next door is the historic Old Gaol Museum, with the WA Museum to its right.  Then comes the heart of Albany Port itself and the magnificent King George Sound, with Mount Clarence and the Southern Ocean in the background.

West: Vancouver apartment looks towards some of the stunning homes that front the harbour. 

Both Apartments

Both apartments have garden views.
