The Gap, Natural Bridge and Blowholes, accessable from Frenchman Bay Road

The Gap, Natural Bridge and Blowholes are granite formations in the Torndirrup National Park, about 20km from Albany city centre, which have been shaped over thousands of years by the elements and the power of the Southern Ocean.

The Gap is a huge chasm with a 24m drop to sea level which can be viewed from the safety of a man-made platform. When heavy sea swells approach The Gap, an immense water spray is forced over its edges.

The Natural Bridge, a huge granite arch and once known as ‘Devil’s Gate’ is located a few hundred metres from The Gap. Nearby are the Blowholes, a series of crevices in the granite which produce loud hissing noises and act like geysers when large waves force water through their holes.

Please treat these landmarks with caution and respect. This stretch of coastline is extremely dangerous and unpredictable, particularly when wet and there have been a number of casualties in recent years.

Car park and barbecue facilities are available on site.
