Albany — 3 nights

Founded as a military outpost in 1826, Albany is the oldest town in Western Australia, just barely gaining this title by being settled two years earlier than Fremantle and Perth.
Venture out of the city with trips to Denmark (Greens Pool, Singlefile Wines, &more). There's still lots to do: stroll through Little Beach, contemplate the waterfront views at Lake Seppings, take in the dramatic natural features at The Gap and Natural Bridge, and take a tour by water with Boat Tours & Water Sports.

To find traveler tips, reviews, photos, and tourist information, read Albany vacation planner.

Hanoi, Vietnam to Albany is an approximately 15.5-hour flight. The time zone difference when traveling from Hanoi to Albany is 1 hour. In December in Albany, expect temperatures between 26°C during the day and 13°C at night. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 23rd (Fri) early enough to drive to Margaret River.

Spend the 24th (Sat) on a tasty journey with a beer tour and tasting. On the 25th (Sun), give your taste buds a day to remember with a local gastronomic tour. Next up on the itinerary: take in the waterfront at Busselton Jetty, learn about winemaking at Island Brook Estate Winery, and look for gifts at Treeton Fine Wood Studio.

A modern metropolis of glassy skyscrapers, waterside boulevards, and lush residential neighborhoods, Perth sits on the edge of the Swan Coastal Plain.

Dedicate the 31st (Sat) to wine at some of the top wineries in the area. There's still lots to do: admire the natural beauty at Kings Park and Botanic Garden, examine the collection at WA Shipwrecks Museum, steep yourself in history at The Perth Mint, and explore the activities along Swan River.

Western Australia travel guide

Beaches · Gardens · Geologic Formations
Western Australia's almost 12,000 km (7,450 mi) of coastline is broken up only by oasis-like towns and cities. Most of the state, however, is an arid region of mostly uninhabited, infertile land with an untamed physical aesthetic. The harsh climate cultivates a laid-back lifestyle centered on the coast’s shaded enclaves and picturesque beaches. Australia’s largest state, with an area of 2.65 million sq km (1 million sq mi), Western Australia contains over a third of the country’s landmass but just 11 percent of its population.
