Many of the historic buildings now house art and craft galleries, museums, bed and breakfasts and restaurants which you can see along the Amity Trail, which is a 30 minute long self-guided walk through the town. You can also tour the old whaling station, clamber aboard a restored whaling boat and explore the famous Brig Amity - a lovingly built replica of the first ship that brought the settlers and convicts Albany. Alternatively you can explore the many natural attractions along the rugged coastline of Torndirrup National Park, or see the famous Natural Bridge granite formation.
