Albany's Historic Whaling Station was the last operating whaling station in Australia and one of the few intact whaling stations in the world accessible to the public.

This iconic site embraces Albany's significant and unique whaling history, with exhibitions allowing visitors to delve into Albany's past.

Throughout the Maritime Festival, Albany's Historic Whaling Station will bring the city's unique history to life throughout various events and activities, such as the travelling exhibit Remarkable - Stories of Australians and their boats, an art exhibition, indoor beach combing and much more.

For more information, head to the Albany Historic Whaling Station's website.
