Albany's Historic Whaling Station

Albany's Historic Whaling Station is part of the Discovery Bay Tourism Precinct, and the only experience of its kind in the world.

Explore an intact whale processing factory and whale chasing ship - fully restored and ready for you to discover.

The Cheynes Beach Whaling Company was the last whaling company to cease operations in Australia, closing in 1978. Opening in 1980 (known then as Whale World), it is now home to an interactive museum on whales and whaling.

Join a tour of the whaling factory with passionate guides to gain an informative overview of the station's operations, and then discover the many additional exhibits at your own pace. 

Guided 40 minute tours run on the hour 10am to 3pm daily and are included with ticket entry.

Allow at least 3 hours to enjoy all there is to see and do.

OPEN 9AM TO 5 PM EVERYDAY (CLOSED 25TH DECEMBER ONLY)

 

Also at Discovery Bay Precinct is an Australian Wildlife Park, and Regional Wildflower Garden
