Free parking and access, with informative boards lining the walk up to a new viewing platform with beautiful views. Well worth the drive up the hill.

This is worth a relaxing walk and visit. Learn all the history as you walk up to the lookout, and then relate the plan to the view you see. A wonderful lookout.

The heritage park is an essential visit if you are in Albany. The Centre and surrounding displays are fascinating reminders of the sacrifice made by the men who sailed to war in 1914. And the logistical challenges of arranging ships, men, horses, weapons and supplies....More

This location provides stunning views of Albany harbour and is just a short walk from the National Anzac Centre. There are a number of guns still in place and also the underground magazine.
