Albany’s star attractions and recreational facilities have started reopening as the State moves into phase three of the easing of COVID-19 restrictions.

The Museum of the Great Southern reopened on Saturday after it was forced to close on March 23.

“It’s always a good time to visit the museum and discover what an amazing region we live in. Our history is rich, from our ancient Menang Noongar culture to the first European settlement,” museum manager Catherine Salmaggi, right, said.

The museum’s current exhibition is Evolution — Torres Strait Masks.

The National Anzac Centre and Forts Store reopen today, with NAC facilities manager Letitia Stone eager to get back to sharing the stories of the Anzacs.

“The staff are incredibly excited to open the NAC doors to visitors, share the site and see individuals and families engage with the Anzac Albany story again,” she said.

The Albany Leisure and Aquatic Centre pool will reopen tomorrow after the ALAC gym, courts and group fitness sessions reopened yesterday.

Playgrounds at Middleton Beach, Emu Point, and Eyre Park opened on Saturday, along with the PCYC Skate Park.
