Highly recommend avoiding the gap you will more than likely be there for no more than 20 minutes and the parking will cost you $14 no matter if you are only there for 1 minute.

No words other than it’s great to go see this area, I believe some years ago you could stand near the edge but the walking platform is superb. Cheers

The Natural Bridge and Gap are extremely popular and often teeming with people so visit before 10am or after 6 pm in Summer. The area has been ruined in my opinion, by the structures and boardwalks but that is what they do now apparently. Not...More

Always popular with the tourists, and the new lookout that hangs over the gap is great. Please stay on the paths as this is a dangerous coast where lives have been lost. A park pass is required and can be purchased from the vending machine...More

The gap was amazing and the landing that you walk on over the part of the gap was fantastic. Listening to the water crashing below was beautiful. The natural bridge what can say how wonderful does nature work,

The work that has been done at this place is amazing. The pathways and viewing platforms make access a breeze. It is in a National Park so you need to pay for parking but is worth it. The view is spectacular.

This spot was on the ‘to do’ list on our way to the whaling station. The Gap was a sight to behold, the water colour and movement mesmerising. A well planned pathway makes this location accessible to all and a very short stroll from car...More
