The Gap and Natural Bridge, Albany

4.7
#1 of 27 in Parks in Albany
Standing atop The Gap and Natural Bridge is a humbling experience: The rocks are the same as those found in Antarctica, meaning that you are standing at the former juncture of two continents. It is an easy stroll on the 300 m (980 ft) flat path from the parking area to watch the waves, rock formations, and rugged coastline from the sheer cliff. Bring a waterproof jacket if windy or rainy. Keep an eye out for whales, which you can often see from the cliffs, especially during winter.

Where to stay in Albany

While virtually free of large hotels, Albany does offer visitors a vast selection of guesthouses, motels, and rental apartments. Many of these are conveniently within the city center, perfect for sightseeing. If you prefer to stay closer to the beaches and a bit farther from the center, the suburbs of Middleton Beach and Emu Point are the places to go. Also on the coast, the Collingwood Park area is the best choice for golfers, with the 18-hole Albany Golf Course just around the corner.
