Welcome to beautiful, historic Albany, a port city, 418km south east of Perth.

Albany is the oldest colonial settlement in Western Australia, being founded in 1826 and it has taken pride in preserving its heritage. It is also a thriving modern city with a strong artistic community. Evidence of this can be seen in statues and street art.

You are invited to explore and enjoy the old and new in Albany using our Albany Town Centre map which can be downloaded or picked up from the Visitor Centre in the main street of town.

On this detailed map you will find 24 checkpoints and 24 corresponding photos. The goal is to visit each check point and match the location with the corresponding photo. These photos show details of buildings, paintings etc. We didn’t make it too easy by providing photos of the whole object! You may start wherever you like and when you think you have found the correct photo for each location, write the number of the location in the white circle on each photo.

The map scale is 1: 4,000 – this means that one centimeter on the map represents forty metres on the ground.

There is no time limit, so take your time to enjoy the story behind each checkpoint.
