A treetop walk will help us explore and uncover the special nature of these trees. The Walk opens us up to a world of birds and flowers that most of us never get to see. The ground level Ancient Empire Boardwalk meanders around and sometimes through a grove of veteran tingle trees. It’s a very peaceful experience with quiet spots to sit and simply enjoy the surrounds. Then its on through Denmark to Albany, Western Australia’s first settlement.
Day 13: Wednesday 07: (BD)
Albany sits on King George Sound and it provides the only natural haven for shipping between here and Melbourne. It was the entry point for thousands joining the gold rushes of the late 1800’s much to the delight of the storekeepers and publicans along the main street of town. More importantly it was where the first convoy of Australian and New Zealand troops departed from during World War 1. We have the privilege of visiting the National ANZAC Centre set within Albany Heritage Park. The centre houses unique content developed by the Western Australian Museum and Australian War Memorial, as we assume the identity of one of 32 characters and follow their personal experiences of the Great War.
