Going west

The Mister and I are flying to WA on Thursday morning for a wee holiday; can't wait.  We will be travelling between Perth and Albany - any suggestions on what to see and do will be appreciated! I've not been to WA before and Mr LRH hasn't been there for years.
It's been quite a week here, with storms, some work-related issues, the nail-biting, nerve-wracking Rugby World Cup win by my favourite team, the All Blacks (despite so many years in Australia I am still a Kiwi at heart) and showing off Ballarat to our lovely young visitors from France. It was cold and wet again today, so most of our sightseeing was from the car, but we managed a walk through the Botanical Gardens without being blown off our feet and they were so impressed by all the beautiful buildings in the city and with our visit to the Art Gallery.

Jan if you're going to Albany go and see the Valley of the Giants at Denmark. You can do the treetop walk (I didn't cos I don't do heights) and the forest floor. The giant Red Tingle trees are amazing, it's just a magical place...

Thanks, girls. Lizzie, you're spot on; Pete did the treetop walk and I admired the forest floor from ground level!
