Visitors can now enjoy spectacular lookouts, walkway and picnic area at the newly opened The Gap and Natural Bridge in Torndirrup National Park, near Albany.

Opened in time for the April school holidays, the $6.1 million facilities upgrade has been made possible by the State Government's Royalties for Regions program and the Department of Parks and Wildlife.
 Environment Minister Albert Jacob and Regional Development Minister Terry Redman announced the opening of the spectacular new tourism facility over the weekend.
"Visitors can experience the dramatic coastline and spectacular scenery out to West Cape Howe from a grated see-through platform that rises almost 40 metres above the ocean and extends 10m out from the cliff face, of which four metres is directly above the ocean.” Mr Jacob said.
Catrin Allsop, A/CEO of Australia’s South West said The Gap and Natural Bridge are a must-see for tourists in the Albany area and is a great addition for our ongoing marketing of the Great Southern.
“This stunning upgrade adds to the wealth of fantastic tourism experiences for visitors to the region including the Granite Skywalk in Porongurup National Park, the Valley of the Giants Tree Top Walk in Walpole-Nornalup National Park, the Discovery Bay Tourism Experience in Frenchman Bay and the National Anzac Centre in Albany.”
