Sugarloaf Rock

Sugarloaf Rock, Naturaliste, Western Australia, Australia

Rising dramatically out of the ocean to a height of over 50 meters, Sugarloaf Rock is one of the most-photographed sites in the south west. It is a great place to watch the sunset and is an awe-inspiring sight during a big winter storm.

The coastline surrounding Sugarloaf is spectacular and ideal for hiking and photography. The Cape to Cape hiking track runs right past here, and a hike in either direction from the Rock is worthwhile. See the Cape Naturaliste entry in the Hiking category in the App for more hiking information.

Sugarloaf is not suitable for swimming. The Rock itself is a nature reserve that is home to nesting red-tailed tropic birds. Dolphins are often spotted in the bay to the right of Sugarloaf, and it is a great spot to see whales as they migrate back south (Sept-Nov). Toilets are available at the car park.

There is a wheelchair / disabled accessible pathway and boardwalk between Sugarloaf Rock and the Cape Naturaliste lighthouse. It’s 3 km length gently rolls and offers some of the most scenic views in the Region.
