Albany Australia. It is hard not to fall in love with Albany. Impossible not to be entranced by a city where the view down the main street, York Street, is straight out into the deep blue waters of Princess Royal Harbour. This historically important city on the wild south coast of Western Australia not only offers the visitor magnificent views over King George Sound (one of the country’s great deep water harbours) but it is rich in elegant public buildings, historic homes, store houses and wharves, and gracious churches.
