Although there are many wind farms to visit and this is not the biggest about 18 I think but it is a nice walk and being close t the coast great views

My first time that I've seen those giant wind turbines and I liked it! Beautiful for any day but I think is perfect for a sunset / sunrise.

Very interesting place to visit...It's fantastic to feel that wind from the ocean and know it is helping out with the environment...feeling very small against the vanes and towers though !

The Albany Wind Farms are impressive but do yourself a favour and take the 10 minute walk to the lookout..simply stunning views of the coastline, this would be a perfect spot for whale watching

Its just that a wind farm! Apart from the spectacular landscape or the area and if there is nothing left to do when visiting Albany then give it a try! It's ok though.

We visited recently and it's a great sight getting right up next to the windmills, the walk is nice down to the coast and is an amazing view

Visit the farm and learn first hand about creating wind powered electricity and the history of the area and the people who have lived there for over 30,000 years. It is another must see.

Most people fight not to have these near their homes and then in Albany is an attraction, I don't get it. Crazy! It's like having Cole as a tourist attraction- crazy

This is a good walking and viewing spot to see the wild coastline here. we love the turbines and often come for a picnic for the sea views. Beware the march flies in the car park!

The Albany wind farm was a very interesting and educational place with amazing views out over the beaches with the turbines.
