Albany is a port city in the Great Southern region of Western Australia, some 418 km SE of Perth, the state capital. As of 2009, Albany's population was estimated at 33,600, making it the 6th-largest city in the state.
The city centre is at the northern edge of Princess Royal Harbour, which is a part of King George Sound. The Central Business District is bounded by Mount Clarence to the east and Mount Melville to the west. The city is in the Local Government Area of the City of Albany.
Albany was founded in January 1827 as a military outpost of New South Wales as part of a plan to forestall French ambitions in the region. The area was initially named Frederickstown in honour of Prince Frederick, Duke of York and Albany. In 1831, the settlement was transferred to the control of the Swan River Colony and renamed Albany by Governor James Stirling.
The apartment is only 100m from the Albany Visitor Centre where the TransWA bus arrives.
It is a very short stroll to the harbour, marina and Albany Entertainment Centre via the pedestrian bridge, and also literally a few minutes walk away from cafes, restaurants and bars, and shops and supermarket.

They are not very loud or frequent, but a light sleeper might be bothered by the noise of them.
