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.

I was initially a bit concerned - oh, yet another one of these typical tourist sites. But already our arrival was spectacular, gushes of water all over the parking lot, sprayed out by the gap. It is really impressive to see the natural forces when the ocean meets the cliffs on the southern coast and lots of fun, too, if you don't mind getting wet. Btw, not easy to take photos because there's water everywhere (at least on a windy day) and make sure you protect your camera well because it's salt water!

All the info says these are wheelchair friendly but if that what albany calls access they need to get their eyes checked.

So beautiful, but I could see that people could get hurt here as the rocks are so tempting to walk all over. There are warning signs, but these get ignored by most.
