Spent four days from 20th April in Beach House number one. Well, the view is just amazing from the beach house, just as it is shown on the web site. Absolutely amazing! The beach house is gorgeous, beautifully decorated, very large main bedroom and en-suite, lovely second bedroom and third bedroom with four bunk beds was ideal for my son.
Site is good, has a good swimming pool, which although we did not use it, was clean and warm and also had a spa there. My son loved playing in the games room on the table tennis and air hockey table.
My only negative was that our beach house for the price we paid, did not get cleaned every day but this was not a major issue, just think for the price it should be included.
Albany is a stunning area, although much colder than in Perth, so be prepared and take some warm fleeces. The weather is very changeable, sunny one minute and then raining the next - but never for very long. The walk from the campsite along the beach and then up onto the boardwalk at Ellen Cove is stunning. Emu point going the other way is also very pretty.
Attractions - cannot recommend enough the Military Museum, which unlike UK attractions, still lets the kids go on their equipment, which my son loved. He is 11 years old and this was his favourite place, with its bunkers and equipment etc, fab. It is just up from the Desert War Memorial at Mount Clarence. The Gap is extremely windy, so be careful! The Blow Holes were very disappointing and not worth the long walk down! Whale World is expensive but worth a visit, very gruesome what they used to do but again, my son enjoyed exploring the old whaling boat, the Cheynes IV. The Brig Amity in town is so much smaller than I imagined but again good for kids to explore. The old goal was also very interesting. The other top place to visit is the Granite Skywalk in the national park, near Mount Barker. This is only 25 minutes outside of Albany and well worth the steep walk to the top. The only disappointing attraction for me, was the Valley of the Giants treetop walk in Walpole, which we visited on the way back home. Very expensive and DO NOT visit if you suffer from sea sickness - the walkway swings and I felt rather sick when by the time I got off! The ancient tree walk at the bottom was much better but still not worth the money and also note that there is NO cafe here. Very strange, could make another small fortune out of the visitors. Enjoy Albany and Middleton Beach holiday park. We will return again, just wish it was a bit closer to Perth!
