Albany was home to the Cheynes Beach Whaling Company, Australia’s last whaling station, which ceased business as recently as 1978. The old whaling station has now been turned into the country’s largest whaling museum. Discovery Bay (formerly known as Whale World) features exhibits about whaling, displays of enormous whale skeletons and theatres converted from three whale oil storage tanks. There are two guided tours a day that show you things that aren’t on display in the museum.
