“It's a Rock with memories”
Reviewed July 31, 2014

Yes it's a rock, but it fills us with pleasant memories of our holidays with our young children. We have been coming to Albany for over 30 years, many of those over the Christmas holidays with our young family. For them, they were not in Albany until they had seen the rock, and it was a competition to see who sees it first and shouts out "Dog Rock". A consolation was "Little Dog Rock", the small rock next to it for the second to se it. Every time we drive down this road and see the Rock, my wife and I automatically call out "Dog Rock" bringing back many happy memories of holidays spent in Albany with our children when they were younger. The rock is shaped like a Labrador head, hence its name. Hopefully it remains to provide other visitors of memories like we have.

While you're around the town centre you don't want to miss the opportunity to visit the dog rock. Looks like a hound! Take a some photos for memories.

“One minute stop”
Reviewed July 16, 2014

Just a rock that look like the head of a dog. Nothing much. Just a photo stop. But cute and a wonder of what nature can do.

“Great Photo Opportunity with a Dog”
Reviewed July 13, 2014

This was really just a 5 minute stop to snap some pics of us our dog with Dog Rock in the background. But very cool nonetheless.
