See how the south coast town of Albany is doing its part to help the environment at Albany Wind Farm.
The farm consists of 12 giant wind turbines, each at a height of 100 metres from the base to the tip of the blades. The turbines generate around 75 per cent of clean, green electricity for Albany.
They’ve also become a popular tourism attraction – standing high on the coast they make a fascinating landmark.
Take a drive to Albany Wind Farm for a closer look. You’ll feel dwarfed by the massive size of the turbines. You’ll also be rewarded with sweeping views across Torbay to West Cape Howe National Park and the city of Albany to the east.
Albany Wind Farm is a short drive from Albany. You can drive to Albany from Perth in around 4.5 hours or fly there in just over 1 hour.
