Attractions

WHEN THE CHEYNES BEACH WHALING COMPANY CLOSED IN 1978, THEY QUITE SIMPLY PUT DOWN THEIR TOOLS AND WALKED AWAY, AND THIS IS WHAT MAKES OUR EXPERIENCE SO AUTHENTIC.

Whale Processing Deck

You can stand on the actual decks where the whales were processed, climb aboard and explore the last whalechaser in Australia, or stand underneath the skeleton of the last sperm whale harpooned in Albany. There is no other whaling display in the world as accessible as this!

Your entry ticket provides unlimited access to all exhibits including the popular Cheynes IV ship, our whale oil tank theatres and fascinating photo and artefact galleries.

Our site is a self-guided experience so grab your map to start your adventure and find yourself immersed in the sights and sounds of the whaling industry.

Plus, at 11.30am & 1.30pm daily we have a pop-up Audio Experience commencing on the flensing deck. The audio runs for approx. 15 minutes and walks you through the flensing and cutting-up decks, and the processing factory, providing an insight into the history of that part of our extensive historical site.

Enjoy a BBQ lunch or picnic in our undercover picnic area or admire the view and seafood cuisine at Whaler’s Galley Café.  There’s even a whale themed playground for the younger visitors!

Don’t forget to visit our Gift Shop before you leave to pick up a souvenir, gift item or one of our many historical reference books.
