As a strategic port, Albany was historically regarded as being vulnerable to attack. Built in 1893 on Mt Adelaide, this fort was initially constructed as a defence against potential attacks from the Russians and French. The restored buildings, gun emplacements and views are interesting, and there are also poignant photos of Anzac troops leaving for Gallipoli. Forts Rd is off Marine Dr.
