The food is all locally sourced and made to order at this superb little café on the main strip of Albany.

Discovery Bay Tourism Experience
Discovery Bay Tourism Experience's Historic Whaling Station (formerly Whaleworld) is located in the former Cheynes Beach Whaling Company which ceased operations in 1978. The late date of the end of whaling in Australia may be surprising to some visitors and the museum has been praised for how it handles this controversial chapter in the country's history. After the last sperm whale was processed, workers simply walked out, leaving behind an intact factory. The museum includes an interactive presentation on whales and whaling. One of the only museums of its kind in the world, the whaling station's tours are led by friendly and knowledgeable guides.

Old Farm, Strawberry Hill, Mira Mar, Australia
Old Farm, Strawberry Hill
The name of the Old Farm at Strawberry Hill reflects its distinction as the oldest farm in Western Australia—even by 1890, it had already earned the label "old." The history of the farm dates to 1827, when a government farm was established at Strawberry Hill as part of the settlement at King George Sound. In 1833, Sir Richard Spencer purchased it, added some 567 hectares (roughly 1400 acres) and lived there with his wife and ten children. In addition to achieving his own financial success, Spencer is credited with improving the fortunes of Albany as a whole. At the end of the 19th century, the Spencers' home was restored and it was later transferred to the National Trust; it is open to visitors daily, year round.

Tree Top Walk
As the name implies, Tree Top Walk is an elevated walkway that climbs 130 feet into the canopy of a forest of giant tingle trees, a species of eucalyptus that only grows in Western Australia. The fragile tingle trees grow up to 250 feet and the elevated walkway provides a way for people to experience and appreciate the trees without harming them. Tree Top Walk appears in writer Bill Bryson’s book In a Sunburned Country where he writes that the walk “deserves to be world-famous.”

A sort of snow globed version of the Amazon, this excellent zoo and museum is a great place to take a gander at many of the animals you wish you could see in the jungle but aren't likely to ever encounter in the wild.

Chico Hot Springs Resort and Day Spa, Pray, Montana
Rustic Luxury Awaits at This Cozy Montana Mountain Getaway
Luxury comes naturally at Chico Hot Springs Resort and Day Spa in Pray, Montana, an understated yet welcoming getaway where solitude reigns supreme. Chico's hot springs are elaborately instituted, flowing into two open-air pools that are open every day of the year. The warming waters boast an intriguing history dating back to the 1800s, when the springs flowed into wooden tubs. These meager beginnings paved the way for a grander future; indeed, after the hotel's development, a larger flowing pool was constructed. There was even a separate area for women only. Rumors swirled of the waters' curative powers, perhaps due to its mineral-rich content. Today, visitors flock for a soak in these leisurely springs. Guests are also welcome to visit the property's day spa, which offers therapeutic massages and detoxifying body treatments. Expert aestheticians employ the earth's most healing ingredients, including Dead Sea salts, fragrant herbs, and heated stones sourced from the river. It's an experience as elegant as it is rustic, honoring the powers of organic healing in a soothing environment. No ordinary resort, Chico Hot Springs Resort and Day Spa is anchored by a quaint, cabin-style main lodge. A series of earthy log cabins feel cozy and autumnal, with warm furnishings and simple layouts. Large groups will love the chalets nestled at the foot of Paradise Valley. Beautiful views encompass the entire property. Between its scenic views, its numerous amenities (play cowboy for an hour as you ride the trail), and its delicious eats, Chico Hot Springs Resort and Day Spa offers something for the entire family.

From the top of the Sun Temple (Templo Del Sol), expansive views frame Lima all the way to the coast on a clear day; and the Palacio de Las Mamacuna (House of the Chosen Women) features remarkable Inca-style trapezoidal doorways.
