Mt Melville - the other side of Albany

Mt Melville - a natural attraction. No facilities here, a bit of a steep drive to get up there. Views lovely, great for photos

We were surprised by how unkempt the whole site is but the view from the top of the tower is very spectacular and helps you to orientate yourself.

Great spot to go, to see the views all around Albany! So much water, bays and islands to see! Make sure you wear a scarf and something warm, as it's often blowy up there, in the cooler weather especially!

Spiral concrete tower not that attractive but it certainly provides fantastic views over Alany & right through to the Stirling Ranges

Fantastic views of Albany, the Harbour, King George Sound and surrounds. Not many places give you 360 degree views but Mt Melville lookout does and what views they are. There are toilets that are clean and well maintained and it's safe for families to visit as well. We thoroughly enjoyed the experience.

Worth the climb as you get a 360 degree view, you can see Stirling ranges, and all around Albany, the islands around.

When in Albany I like to walk up Mt Melville, as it is a decent walk that gets you puffing. The lookout has good views.

Great place to visit...a view of the whole of Albany from this spot...spoiled by the graffiti that has been scrawled all over it...needs to be cleaned up...a great place for anyone visiting Albany.

Wow what a view you get from up here. I could have stood looking for hours, a super lookout spot and 360 view

We stayed recently and went to the lookout and it's a great view across the town and port as well as the wind farm
