    About

    Convoy Walk and Lookout on Mount Adelaide in Albany, is a must-visit for anyone interested in Australian history and culture. The walk and lookout commemorate the departure of Australian troops from Albany during World War I and World War II. The walk starts at the Longing, Memory, Sight artwork, which is a fragment of a letter sent by a soldier to his loved one. The walk then takes you through a series of 21 interpretive markers, each of which tells the story of a different ship in the first and second convoys. The lookout at the end of the walk offers stunning views of King George Sound, where the troops gathered on ships before departing for war. There is also a shelter at the lookout with interpretive material about the convoys. The walk is suitable for all ages and fitness levels. It is approximately 1.5 kilometres long and takes around 30 minutes to complete. The lookout is accessible by wheelchair.
