Overview
More
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.

We visited this amazing location last year and still cherish the memories. The water looks so serene decorated with white rocks. The platform at the gap is certainly chilling and offers a great view of the ocean. Weathering of natural bridge is quite a sight,...More

Mother nature at her best! A must see for this part of Western Australia. Pay the parking fee, as the money goes to making this landmark easily accessible to everyone, just not the sure footed!

It is a brilliant visitor experience. And, yes the best viewing location is from the platform itself. Always keep to the designated paths.

Son went down there on a school camp and wandered off the path. He slipped and broke his wrist. Others have lost their lives recently , so stay on the path !!
