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.

“Natures Power”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

The Gap & Natural bridge (which are within 100 metres of each other) are examples of the power of nature to sculpt the coastline. The gap is a fissure in the cliff face into which waves pound creating a display of spray & sound. The Natural Bridge is a rock formation which spans probably 30 to 40 metres of wild surf hitting the rocks under the span creating a spectacular display, depending on the prevailing winds. Both attractions are linked by pathways but this is a dangerous coastline & although there are barriers for tourists to lean against, many tourists seem to ignore them & place themselves at risk by clambering over the rocks. Lives have been lost on this coastline so it should be treated with respect & common sense.

“The Gap & Natural Bridge”
Reviewed July 17, 2013

Awesome, beautiful, majestic. The scenery is amazing. Easy access too. Loved the colour of the water as it crashed onto the rocks. Interesting to see the huge drill holes in the rocks where they were split to create the pathways.
