Albany is a port city located in the Great Southern Region of Western Australia, 390 km (244 miles) south-east of Perth , the state capital.

The city was founded in January 1827 as a military outpost of New South Wales as part of a plan to forestall French ambition in the region.

During the late nineteenth and early twentieth century's the town served as a gateway to the Eastern Goldfields and for many years was the colony's only deep water port, having a place of eminence on shipping services between Britain and its Australian colonies.

Today the town of Albany has a place of significance as a tourist destination and base from which to explore the south west of the state and is well regarded for its natural beauty and preservation of heritage.
