The Gap and Natural Wonders

Your Buys Blue Bus Tour Guide Driver will meet you at the Albany Visitor Centre or alternatively at your accommodation (just let us know).  You will be greeted heartily and with an enthusiasm to share a fabulous journey to some amazing coastline.  You leave the town of Albany and drive around the edge of Princess Royal Harbour and into the pristine bush environment of the Torndirrup National Park.  Along the peninsula your first stop is to take in the 360 degree views of the coastline from the summit of Stony Hill after a short walk to this peak significant in WW1 .  From here it is possible to see the vast expanse of the Southern Ocean and the rugged coastlines that early explorers first encountered as they rounded the peninsula for the sheltered waters of King George Sound.  Get closer to the edge! Your next stop is The Gap, where from the newly constructed platform you can feel the power of the wind and water from the masterfully crafted, protected walkway.  See the pounding waves as they thrash the granite walls and surge into the spaces below. Exhilarating! Learn how The Gap formed in the living diorama of the Natural Bridge. Travel on along Frenchman Bay Rd to the Wind Farm where the view to the west along the coast to William Bay is possible. Complete your journey and exploration of the impressive coastline with some delectable afternoon tea, in the shelter of Ellen Cove at Middleton Beach.
