Attractions

The Albany historical society serves as custodian to two of Albany’s greatest historical treasures, both of these are open to the public and are wonderful attractions for visitors of Albany!

Albany Convict Gaol

The old gaol is now fully restored and the ghosts of the unfortunates who inhabited it can be visited daily. Displays in the Great Hall, warders' quarters and cells illustrate the way things were in past, less privileged, times.

Patrick Taylor Cottage

This 11 room wattle and daub home, furnished as it would have been in bygone days, is the oldest surviving dwelling in Western Australia. The cottage is the pride and joy of the Albany Historical Society and a must-see attraction for visitors.
