Come with us to remember 100 years since the end of the first world war
Remembrance Day in Albany this year will be even bigger than it has in the past, as it celebrates 100 years since the end of World War 1. Albany is the oldest colonial settlement in Western Australia, founded in 1826 as a military outpost of New South Wales, and it was the last port of call for troopships departing Australia in the First World War, which makes this year’s event even more significant.
To be part of this important event, we have planned a 4-day tour to Albany, departing Perth on Saturday 10 November and returning on Tuesday 13 November 2018.
The trip includes a visit to the Field of Lights – a fabulous light installation along the Avenue of Honor at Mt Clarence. The exhibition was created by Bruce Munro, the same artist who installed the light display at Uluru which has received widespread acclaim. The light installation at Albany pays homage to the ANZACs and includes 13,000 white, yellow and gold shining spheres marking the last sight of home for 41,000 troops who departed from Albany for the Great War.
Also included in the tour are three breakfasts, three dinners, visits to the award-winning National ANZAC Centre, Princess Royal Forts, the Albany Convict Museum, the Gap, the Natural Bridge, Greens Pool, Elephant Rocks, and a Walpole Inlet cruise.
The cost is $1,370 per person ($1,320 for seniors) plus a single supplement of $250 for those who would prefer single accommodation.
