The Gap

The Gap and Natural Bridge formations are located only a short drive from Albany City out onto the Torndirrup Peninsula, the most amazing coast.

King Waves (BEWARE)

Do not be deceived. The waves are forceful and unrelenting. This is an example of the wave heights on small swell days. Standing in this location during a high swell would be incredibly dangerous. Don't do this. However, learn from it as the south coast is known for it's bigger-than-average waves called KING WAVES that are up to ten times as big as a normal wave. NEVER let kids go near the water or on the rocks without experienced adult supervision.
