      Description

      Torndirrup National Park

      10km south of Albany on Frenchman Bay Road, this rugged national park is the most visited in WA, and draws punters for its wave-carved features including the Natural Bridge, The Gap, and the Blowholes, plus the chance to spot whales from the sea cliffs. There are lookouts and short walk trails from the car park near the main entrance: Stony Hill Heritage Trail is a 500m scenic circuit that gives 360-degree views of the park and back over Albany, or take the six-minute return walk to the Jimmy Newells Harbour lookout (for some more challenging walks, see ‘hiking’). This is also where you’ll find some of Albany’s best fishing action, head down the steep steps to Salmon Holes where, as you can guess, there’s an abundance of salmon and snapper in this beautiful bay. Fishing is good off the beach and the rocks but be aware that king waves have claimed lives, so it’s a good idea to wear a life jacket. It’s also a popular surf spot. Whale World is also within the borders of the park (see ‘Historic Albany’ section). Sitting below the ex-whaling station to the east is the secluded, north-facing Misery Beach, a clean stretch of sand that offers shelter in most weather conditions for swimming and snorkelling. There are no camping or other facilities in the park.
