Torndirrup National Park

Torndirrup National Park is on a peninsula some 30 km south of Albany was one of the first national parks in Western Australia, it was gazetted in 1918, but it was only named in 1969. Torndirrup is the name of an Aboriginal clan that lived on the peninsula and in the west of Albany. In this fascinating coastal park, the Southern Ocean has sculpted a Natural Bridge in the granite rocks. It also formed “The Gap”, a narrow space through which incoming waves rush in and create big fountains of water with great ferocity. The Blowholes 'blows' air and occasionally seaspray with great noise that is quite impressive. There is a varied vegetation which forms protective habitats for native animals like possums, kangaroos, bandicoots, rare bush rats and a variety of local reptiles. One of nature’s most spectacular sights are offered during the cooler winter months: whales are frequently seen from the cliffs, and seals sometimes visit the coast, too. On the northern side of the peninsula, there is a Whaleworld, a museum about ‘all things whale’.
