Surrounded by the beautiful Princess Royal Harbour and breathtaking King George Sound, the picturesque, vibrant and thriving city of Albany is steeped in history, heritage and culture. Encompassing breathtaking views, visitors to the region will enjoy the spectacular marine life, captivating coastline and amazing array of local arts, crafts and culinary delights.
Enjoy Albany all year round
Wildflowers abound all around Albany throughout the spring. Visitors are invited to discover the art and creativity of the region at the Southern Art and Craft Trail, the Spring Writers Festival and various studio and gallery exhibitions around the beautiful countryside.
Visit local farms and markets to taste nationally renowned produce, explore the city to find traces of Western Australia’s first settlement or see majestic whales passing by on their annual migration.
Whether swimming, snorkelling or lazing on the beach, there are many ways to uncover the beautiful Albany beaches tucked in and around the coastline. In the city, the streets are abuzz with shopping, great food, festivities and tourist attractions, welcoming visitors into the historic heart of the city.
In Autumn, Albany truly gears up for fun and feasting! The Taste Great Southern Festival brings visitors to the beautiful coast and rural surrounds of Albany to meet chefs, food authors and local artists and is truly a celebration of the quality regional produce.
Stunning in winter, the swell from the Southern Ocean breaking over granite and roaring onto open beaches is truly a sight to behold. From late May until October, visiting Humpback and Southern Right Whales migrate North, spending their time playing in King George Sound close to the coastline.
Get up close on a once-in-a-lifetime whale tour, then return to the warmth of Maitraya’s fireplaces, enjoy the exhibitions showing in local galleries, indulge in spa treatments or immerse yourself in the local history.

Uniquely sublime !!!
You just run out of superlatives here. The privacy is unmatched, anywhere we've stayed. A whole headland and two beaches to yourself. The property is magnificently designed, built and positioned. The master-suite, with uninterrupted views over the ocean, out to the islands, and an auto-sliding roof for star-gazing, just can't be beaten. The indoor pool was excellent for a late swim once the sun had gone down, and a glass of red watching the sunset with kangaroos for company... well, enough said. Spoil yourself !
An amazing stay at a truly iconic home. Everything you require and more, we couldn't do everything that was on offer! With a group of twelve for 3 nights everyone was blown away with the natural beauty of the surrounds and the decadence Maitraya exudes. Be it one of a myriad of sporting activities on offer or sneaking away for a quick relax this place has it all.
