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.

“Awesome”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 26, 2013

Natural features are awesome to look and marvel at. It could be pretty windy and chill even in summer. Be sure to snap lots of photos while there. This should be followed by a short drive to the blowhole. It is totally awesome. We couldn't catch any wave coming out of the blowhole. But the sound rumbling through can be pretty awesome too.

“Takes your breath away”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 20, 2013

Natural sights are most beautiful untouched. See it for yourself, the beautiful rock formations that have transformed over the years.

“Wild Wonder”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 12, 2013

Feels like you're standing at the end of the earth. Wild rocks and waves, looking all the way to Antarctica. Be careful, especially when wet, slippery!

“Amazing Coastline”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 8, 2013

The coastline in this part of Western Australia is spectacular. And authorities have made access very easy with great signposting and good, sealed, all-weather roads.

The granite cliffs along this part of the coast add to the awe!! And whilst I have seen much bigger coastal clefts, the combination of The Gap and The Natural Bridge make this attraction well worth the visit.

Whilst you're in the area make the most of the short, easy walk up to Cave Point Lighthouse - the light is pretty basic, but in November the road is flanked by wildflowers of all descriptions!!
