The scenery here was unbelievable, but the norm from this beautiful part of Australia. Well laid out pathways, and even for a vertigo sufferer I ventured further over the water than I thought.

This would have to be a 'bucket list' must see. If there when the ocean is in a mean state you will get a spectacle although it will prohibit you from getting anywhere near the walks for safety reasons. Make sure you take something warm...More

This was my favourite viewing platform in Albany. The walk to the viewing point is very short and safe. The views from boths sides were just spectacular.

Have visited many times over the years, and was impressed with the recent additions for tourists making it safer and managing the crowds easily. Views are great and the whole national park is worth exploring.

Breathtaking coastal scenery with fabulous rock formations and cliffs and crashing waves, but well managed with paths, hand rails and viewing platforms in all the right places and easily accessible from the car park. Good for someone of any level of fitness or ability really.

Billion year old Gondwanaland rock formations. How often do you see that, definitely worth a visit! Interesting information boards around about the technology used to build the platforms and some local history.

Nice granite area with sheer 40m cliffs seen from a sturdy metal sky-walk and a bit further down you can see a natural stone bridge. Nothing really that spectacular that needs more than 10 minutes of your time. Be aware that you need to buy...More

Well worth a visit for the stunning views and to see the amazing engineering work involved in the construction of the bridge. A small fee is payable for the car park but well worth it.
