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 didn't know what to expect on the way to the Gap, but we weren't disappointed. The area is beautiful and the recently opened ramp and walkways blend beautifully into the environment. The platform sits over the top of a dead end channel that sees...More

I visited here on my first day in Oz and must say it took my breath away. The spray from the water is incredible. You really feel like you are in the environment. It's been built really well.

A recently opened footpath makes it easy to get to these sights. Watch the waves pound against the rocks. A hanging observation deck gives wonderful views of the Gap.

When here on a wet and very windy day and was a little worried about going out on the viewing platform. It is absolutely worth it and a great feat of engineering, I felt quite safe on it even with the strong wind. You do...More

If you are going to the Whaling Station museum, there is a cafe in there apparently.
