Whalers Beach Information
Whalers Beach near Albany is the perfect vantage point to keep a look out for passing Humpback and Southern Right whales. Whalers Beach is also well known for the HMAS Perth dive site, which is located not far off the beach. The dive site features an interpretive dive trail around the 133 metre long artificial dive reef, giving divers the opportunity to discover the ship’s past.
Snorkelers are also able to explore the area and check out the unusual sight of the ruins of the Old Norwegian whaling station closer in to the shore. The abundant marine life taking shelter in the ruins makes it well worth a look.
Whale watchers will be impressed with the opportunity to sit on a sheltered beach and enjoy a picnic whilst keeping a watch out for the whales swimming gracefully through the waters of the King George Sound. Make use of the barbecue facilities and shaded grassed area, or if it is a warm day, enjoy a swim in the ocean.
Whalers Beach is a twenty minute drive from Albany and four and a half hours drive south of Perth.
