Whale-watching and whaling history are a big drawcard to Albany, on Western Australia’s south-east coast. Southern right whales visit from around July to October, and cruises depart from Albany’s jetty daily. Whaling continued here until 1978, when worldwide bans were implemented. You can see displays on the industry in all its gory detail at the old Cheynes Beach Whaling Station south of town.
