It's just a rock that looks like a dog, you will spend a few minutes here taking photos but there's nothing else to see. Although, if you look over the road you will see a huge boulder which a motel has been built around. It's...More

You need some imagination, but our visitor saw the dog’s head. Bit “ho-hum” if you’ve seen it previously. Standing as a sentry to the car park entry. Good for a quirky photo.

A granite rock that is the shape of a dogs head. Not worth visiting on its own but you can easily drive by. The shopping centre behind is called dog rock shopping centre

Part of Albany that must be seen, even if just a whistle stop. Park in the nearby shopping centre and it takes a short stroll to get a good look, but be aware of the traffic as it sits on a busy street.

Worth a quick stop if driving by to take a picture, and easy to see the dog head shape. Few shops closeby too and accommodation.
