Photographer's Note

Torndirrup National Park is located in the South Coast of Western Australia. It is about 400 km south east of Perth, and 10 km south of Albany. It has many impressive rock formations. The Southern Ocean has carved a 'Natural Bridge' in the granite rocks which has consequently formed 'The Gap' (see previous photo upload) where the waves flow with great force. There are also 'Blowholes' where a small crack in the rocks blows air and occasionally water-spray upwards.

Torndirrup National Park covers approximately 3906 hectares across the southern section of Princess Royal Harbour. It is one of the first in the State to be gazetted as a national park, in 1918, though it was not named until 1969 and acquired its first resident ranger in 1973. Torndirrup was the name of the Aboriginal clan that lived on the peninsula and to the west of what is now Albany.
