The wind farm has nice lookouts over the southern ocean. Information boards & toilets. Even a fast food truck is parked there. Good coastal track is part of the bibbulumin walk trail through coastal bushland. Watch for whales.

Absolutely loved walking amongst them. The noise is incredible and the power is phenomenal. It is great to know that 80% of Albanys power comes from the turbines.

Really cool to see these thing up close and to hear them too. Really enjoyed our trip to see them and to think they are solving an energy problem.

It's my 2nd visit and the Albany Wind Farm remains a great attraction with its 18 huge wind turbines in full operations. Pity the weather wasn't good with heavy rains hitting just before the sunset, but would still definitely recommend a visit and hope you'll...More
