Rotary Lookout offers uninterrupted panoramic views of King George Sound, Ataturk Entrance and Middleton Beach.
The Lookout is a popular spot for visitors, with oustanding views and landmarks visible for many kilometres in several directions. A plaque describes the landmarks and islands visible in the distance.
The lookout links to the popular Ellen Cove Boardwalk
Between June and October, Southern Right Whales are regularly spotted in the Sound, sometimes quite close to the shore. A coin operated binocular is provided to give the best views.
The lookout links to the popular Ellen Cove Boardwalk, which follows the coast from Middleton Beach to the Town Centre. A moderate walk will take you to nearby Ataturk Statue, Point King Lighthouse and remains of the Plantagent Battery.
Constructed by Rotary Club of Albany, the lookout was officially opened by Noel Semmens, Director WA Department of Tourism on 19th June 1975.
Now part of Albany Heritage Park Precinct, the lookout has recently been upgraded with more convenient parking, better viewing facilities and new informational signage.
Rotary Lookout is easily accessible with convenient parking, just 3.5 km from the centre of Albany, along Marine Drive.
