Really enjoyed the walk trail and interpretive signs along the towering turbines. A fantastic mix of natural environment and man made turbines generating power for the city of Albany. A must do when visiting.

Never knew you could get so close to the wind turbines. Always see them off in the distance so have no idea how big they actually are. This place is great. There are several lookouts, a path that winds around the turbines and you can walk right up to the base of one of them.

I find wind farms quite beautiful on the horizon but have never had the opportunity to get up close and personal. It is well considered as a tourist activity with numerous paths and lookout spots. Also, promoting clean energy, there is sufficient information to adequately inform the average person on their value to the community.

Defiantly a must do in your way to see the blowholes, the views are amazing and just hearing the shear sounds of the turbines just makes you appreciate renewable energy

Well laid out steps and paths meander around areas of the wind farm providing some snapshots of Aboriginal life and also the story of the wind turbines. Well worth taking the time to read the information boards. Best time to be there is on sunset as a couple of the lookouts have stunning views across to the setting sun -... More

Spent a couple of hours wandering all around this site. a few trails to follow leading to different areas which allow you right to the bases of these monsters. Interesting facts and magnificent views to match.

The wind farm is impressive but walk the 100 meters or so to the lookout that has views along the coast to the east and west. There is also a walking tail both ways. Watch for the tiger snakes along the dirt track on a hot day--one sighted and a local advised us to watch out.

The wind farm is a great attraction to stretch your legs and gain a view of a surfing and fishing beach.Try walking down to the beach and back up again (500 steps each way). Remember in summer to carry water.

My hubby and I enjoyed the breeze as we took a leisure walk to the lookout. There are a few look out and went went towards the coastline. It was beautiful. Nice scenery and pictures taking. Not to be missed if you are in Albany.
