We were the only people on the tour that afternoon, and Lawrence collected us from our accommodation. His local knowledge (and, by the sound of it, extensive local connections) made the tour fascinating and very informative, with some behind-the-scenes insights that don't usually crop up on such occasions. Thanks, Lawrence - you made our afternoon!

Then National ANAC Centre so very well done incredible to travel through the life of one on the brave young men setting out in ships from their homeland in the town of Albany to go to war in a country so far away. So very sad and so many never made it back home to Australia. Heritage Park was fantastic a must to see when you visit the beautiful town of Albany.

We took the Albany History and Highlights half-day tour which included the sights of Albany plus a visit to the National ANZAC Center. This was especially significant as we were there on November 11, the 99th anniversary of the end of WWI. We had a tour of the town, visited the Patrick Taylor Cottage, the oldest dwelling in Western Australia, stopped at the beach for tea and then the museum. Highly recommend this tour as you can't see too much of the area by just taking the shuttle into town. Timing worked out well with our cruise ship window of time.

Hi psjoneses So glad you enjoyed the half day tour with Busy Blue Bus Tours + Charters on your cruise visit to Albany. We are particularly pleased to read that the timing worked well for your cruise ship arrival and departure times. That's great feedback! There's lots to see and explore in Albany and the port shuttle is a short and functional ride to the Town Square. 'We'll show you more' on one of our tours that can be purchased on the street when a cruise ship in berthed.
