Discovery Bay near Albany is a truly unique attraction. It is home to Australia’s last operating Whaling Station, a stunning Botanic Garden of Australian plants and a display offering visitors a close up experience with friendly Australian Wildlife. You can choose to explore either our whaling history, or the gardens and wildlife, or the entire site to make a real day of it! Pack a picnic or BBQ lunch and spend a day discovering lots you didn’t know about the Great Southern region. Situated at the tip of the Flinders Peninsula, the heritage-listed “Whale World” site has undergone dramatic change since 2004. Now maximising its location, Discovery Bay is a showcase of amazing regional bio-diversity, yet still remains true to the original whaling display. Historic Whaling Station guided tours are included with admission, while informative displays are provided to enjoy the gardens and wildlife at your own pace. Open 7 days (Closed 25th December) www.discoverybay.com.au
