Albany Entertainment Centre

Albany

The Albany Entertainment Centre is a significant project for the local community and broader South West region. Providing an International standard for entertainment is a catalyst for community interaction and re-energises the waterfront.

Albany is a historic coastal township with a dramatic and beautiful coastline – host to one of the world’s greatest natural harbours. Topography created the harbour and the harbour created Albany.

The Albany Entertainment Centre is in the heart of the harbour – a waterside sculpture reflecting the crystalline molecular structures of earth. Like a cut diamond, its form changes and reflects light as you move around it. Elegant and unimposing it responds to the undulating composition of the harbour.
