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.

“Natural beauty”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

Well worth a stop if you are in albany or driving through. This natural formation is very pretty and shows the power of the ocean. The area can be dangerous so its important to be careful.

“Driving the South West of WA - spectacular scenery”
Reviewed April 5, 2013

Spectacular coastal scenery. Rugged granite cliffs that roll down to the sea with bright white sand and aqua colored water. Very beautiful.

“Go there when there's swell”
Reviewed April 1, 2013

This is spectacular when there is a strong swell, the power of nature at its best. If its rough or raining though be careful and stay on the paths as the spray can make the rocks quite slippery.
