The Mount Adelaide Nature Trail is one of Albany's 10 Great Walks and one of my favourites because it has so many underground bunkers, slit drains and big guns at the Fortress which is one of Australia's best outdoor military museums and site of the National Anzac Centre.

Supported by great organisations

Trails are free and bring so many benefits to our community by providing opportunities to have fun, get fit, socialise, explore and challenge yourself. But they also have to be managed and maintained which only is made possible through terrific sponsors, donations and/or volunteering.
