“Glorious experience.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 3, 2013

I love meandering through the huge turbines, enjoying the space and the views, especially along the cliff. Nature at its most dramatic and beautiful. Not far out of town, informative, unique.

“get up close & marvel at the size”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

The Albany Wind Farm is a short drive from the centre of town. The road is paved all the way, just follow the signs. Upon arrival at the main car park visitors will marvel at the size of these man made monuments to our need for electrical power. For keen photographers there is a lookout on a small hill adjacent to the car park which allows a vista of the windmills which stretch off into the distance. Sunset is a good time to view for spectacular photographs during the summer

I love this place... quiet and serene. The view up the hill with the sea and all the windmills is just awesome! Been there twice and still loving it!

“Beautiful sunset along the coast with all gigantic wind turbines”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2013

We arrived during sunset to see the wind turbines along the coast line .. Amazing sights and never been so close to a wind turbine before .. Amazing coastline scenery as well.. There were a few lookout spots that gave stunning views . Spend at least 1 hour 30 minutes to walk along those places and go during sunset so the scene will be more dramatic and the sun behind you for a good photo .. Located 15km from albany city centre so 15 minutes drive .. A worthwhile visit
