Owner description: The surging power of the Southern Ocean is evident at The Gap, a spectacular channel in the 40 metre high coastal granites of Torndirrup National Park. Lookouts at both the Gap and natural Bridge provide outstanding views of the Southern Ocean and the coast from Bald Head to West Cape Howe. Visitors to the Gap can venture onto a universally accessible new viewing platform 40 metres directly above the surging seas in all but the worst weather conditions. From the gentle and mesmerising heaving of calm seas to the buffeting rush of wind and spray of winter storms the experience changes from day to day. A raised pathway leads from the car-park and picnic area across the top of the exposed granite ramparts to reach the viewing platform at the Gap. The pathway gives safe access to the best views while protecting vulnerable plants and lichens on the rock surface from trampling.

“Amazing granite formation!”
Reviewed November 27, 2012

The Gap and Natural Bridge is in the Torndirrup National Park along the coastline. The granite formation is amazing and gigantic! Feels like back to the stone age.

The interesting part is the natural bridge, you can walk on top of it and your friend may take a picture of you from the opposite side so you can see how small you are on the gigantic natural bridge!

“Great way to spend a stormy day”
Reviewed November 19, 2012

It's definitely a worthwhile trip out to the Gap, and a brilliant way to spend a windy wild day. It only makes the Gap more impressive with spray flying up and hitting most of the cars in the car park (park further away if your worried about your cars paint-job).

“Natural Beauty”
Reviewed November 18, 2012

The Gap and Natural Bridge are amazing sights of natural beauty. There are nice plaques that explain how they were created and the ultimate future of the Natural Bridge.

If you do have kids, make sure they stay on the path as it would be quite easy to fall off the cliff if they wander.

“Worth The Drive”
Reviewed November 12, 2012

This area is definitely set up for a large number of tourists so that makes it very easy to get to and to walk up to the viewing platforms, you can also walk around the area as well, as its not far from the carpark
