Public Silo Trail: See the big picture

FORM’s PUBLIC Silo Trail is putting regional Western Australia up in lights, bringing world class murals to grain silos, transformer boxes and iconic infrastructure in unexpected towns right across the state.

Albany Yok and Sheryo

For tens of thousands of years Albany was known as Kinjarling, the ‘Place of Rain’, home to the Menang Noongar peoples. Albany also marks the spot where the first European settlers set foot in Western Australia, and much of their legacy remains today, with over fifty colonial buildings standing proudly as museums, galleries and restaurants. From convict prisons, whaling ships and taverns, to quaint cottages and grand National Trust residences, Albany offers almost two centuries of settler history – and an abundance of good places to eat.

The city is located on a wild and dramatic coast. The surrounding region boasts a number of reserves and national parks from which to spot the abundant wildlife and take in the stunningly ragged granite coastline that over time has been carved and sculpted by the wild Southern Ocean.

Don’t miss:

The National Anzac Centre: Albany’s King George Sound marks the spot where the first convoy of Anzacs departed for the battlegrounds of the First World War. Today, you can follow their extraordinary stories through the National Anzac Centre’s state-of-the-art interactive displays, as well as contemplate their sacrifices as you walk through Field of Light: Avenue of Honour, an immersive artwork of 16,000 lights by Bruce Munro.

The Gap, Natural Bridge, and The Albany Blow Holes: where the wildness of ocean and coastline combine to make an unforgettable experience, and unmissable photo opportunities.

For more information and to plan your trip visit the Albany Visitors Centre.
