Point Possession Heritage Trail, Albany

About the Trail

Built in 1988 as one of the heritage trails created to mark Australia's Bicentennial, the Point Possession HT takes you out on the Vancouver Peninsula, along two stunning beaches and towards the rock cairn marking the spot where Captain George Vancouver claimed this area for the British in 1791. 

Starting along the beautiful cliffs above Whalers Cove, the walk takes you through wildflower filled woodlands and on towards the loop section that lets you walk along the pristine Brambles Beach. The climb up to Point Possession provides some of the best views of King George Sound before you head down to the picture perfect Barker Bay Beach. Be sure to bring your swimming gear in summer as there is a good chance you will have the beach all to yourself.
