Family and I will be in WA in late Nov into Dec this year, 2012. Our plan is just to be in Albany. We will be there for 6 nights and use it as a base, before coming back to Perth for 4 nights.
From previous discussions, I suppose I will drive straight to Albany. We arrive only at about 1.30pm in Perth. Assuming we start our journey at 3pm, will we still have sufficient sunlight to drive safely to Albany that time of the year?
My preference is to try to get to Albany by the same day. However, if this is not realistic, what's a nice place to rest for the evening?
From my own research I also feel confident that there is enough nature walks, activities to keep the family occupied. We do not like to move from hotel to hotel each night. I hope this works. My children are 15, 12 and 9.
I'd welcome any help or suggestions. Cheers.
