1849 Backpackers

Probably one of my favourite hostels in Australia. A rustic European feel. Free pancakes. And good vibes. I got the feeling that I wouldn’t mind staying in Albany for a while as soon as I got to the hostel. Just a short walk from the shops, visitor centre, Mount Clarence, The Amity and the foreshore I would recommend staying in this hostel when in Albany.

Mount Clarence

Now from the bottom Mount Clarence looks like it has quite a climb to the peak. However, you will reach the top really quickly where you will be greeted by great views of the town, port, Mount Melville and the esplanade up to Emu Point.


The Amity 

I won’t lie I didn’t do more than simply walk past The Amity. I didn’t even take a photo so I can’t really tell you much about it. Maybe I should have been a bit more interested. Sorry.

Torndirrup National Park 

I would recommend going here 100%. But only if you have access to a car. Within the national park are the #1 things to do in Albany. However we were inspired by Bradley Wigins, thought we could hire bikes and cycle there. Which we did. We majorly underestimated how far it was. But after about 4 hours and a detour to Frenchman Bay and Vancouver Peninsula we made it to The Gap and Natural Bridge. Which I have to say probably wasn’t worth having a sore bum from but I’m glad we got to tick it off the list.
