Peak Head Track is in the spectacular Torndirrup National Park near Albany. The almost five kilometre return walk follows a sandy track that winds through thick coastal scrub and granite walls. You are rewaRoaded for your efforts by spectacular views of the Southern Ocean.
At the southernmost peak of the Torndirrup Peninsula is Peak Head, a bluff of rounded cliffs with spectacular ocean views. The track to Peak Head starts near the Stony Hill Car Park and winds through thick coastal scrub. The return walk takes around 2.5 hours and requires some clambering and climbing over granite rocks and up small granite walls. Fantastic views over the Southern Ocean make the effort worthwhile.
About the region
This wild and rugged coastal park is known for its spectacular wave-carved features including the Natural Bridge, The Gap and the Blowholes. At Torndirrup National Park, windswept coastal heaths give way to massive granite outcrops, sheer cliffs and steep sandy slopes and dunes. The Southern Ocean has sculpted a Natural Bridge in the coastal granites and formed The Gap, where the waves rush in and out with tremendous ferocity. The Blowholes, a crackline in the granite, 'blows' air and occasionally spray. The noise is quite impressive.
