The Ellen Cove boardwalk at Middleton Beach

The boardwalk as it is known to the locals is one of the best ways to enjoy our beautiful Princess Royal Harbour & Middleton Beach. This dual-use pathway is a mixture of bitumen path with some wooden boardwalk.

Starting at Ellen Cove Middleton Beach this 6km trail winds up and around the side of the hill taking in spectacular views of the bay all the way to the Albany central business district. In the whale watching season (May-November) the chance to spot a whale or two is just one of the reasons to stretch the legs. While on the trail you will be able to explore with the help of the interpretive signage all the lookouts, memorials to past historical figures, historic buildings including a bunker & lighthouse. While enjoying the scenery spare a thought for our fallen Australian troops who left this beautiful place on their way to fight in Gallipoli.
