Albany has again proved itself to be a must-see travel destination, ranking in Expedia’s top-25 most beautiful places in Australia.

The travel website listed Albany at No.21, the second WA spot to make the list, behind Esperance at No.20.

Expedia said Albany was where “mountains and sea collide” to create stunning coastal scenery.

“There are a few national parks and nature reserves, but if you only have time for one stop, make it Two People’s Bay,” the site read.

“You’ll find the entrance to Heritage Trail and beloved Little Beach, which is big on fun.

“If you get hungry for a bite, the waterfront restaurant Due South serves up world-class entrees only matched by the spectacular scenery.” The list was based on what destinations were creating the most “buzz” online.

Rottnest Island (22) and Broome (23) also made the top 25.

It comes after the City of Albany took out two awards at the WA Tourism Awards in November.
