Live music, a free sausage sizzle and plenty of stalls to explore is what attendees found at the Albany Port Open Day.

While the docked HMAS Collins submarine was the main attraction, the educational day was disguised with plenty of fun including a bouncy castle, Sandy the seagull and Jamie the clown making the rounds.

The Albany Shantymen brought the tunes, the Royal Australian Navy answered questions and other stall holders handed out free merchandise and shared their knowledge with the public.

Families explored the exhibits under a sunny blue sky.

Did we see you there?
