Discover the Great Southern

The Great Southern is a renowned biodiversity hotspot with soaring mountain ranges, massive seas, stunning beaches, ancient forests and edge-of-the-earth towns. It is steeped in history and has since become the food bowl of the state producing world-class wines, whisky and locally grown and caught produce. Board a charter from Albany during the whale-watching season and watch humpback whales gather in sheltered bays along the south coast. Welcome to a nature and adventure-lovers’ paradise.

The Great Southern region’s local seafood includes marron, salmon, herring, southern rock lobsters, deep-water crabs, scallops, and king george whiting, with mussels and oysters produced in Albany’s Oyster Harbour. Try out some of the local produce in one of the region’s many seafood-focused restaurants in Denmark and Albany, or drop your line into the water and have a go at catching some yourself.
