One of the most photographed seascapes in Western Australia, Sugarloaf Rock is in the Leeuwin-Naturaliste National Park. This impressive rock formation dominates the coastline near Cape Naturaliste. You can see experienced rock fishermen taking up the challenge from the edge of the rock – but the powerful swell is not for amateurs.

Sugarloaf Rock is also a great place for bushwalking and bird watching. It’s the only known nesting site in the south west of the red-tailed tropic bird. The Cape to Cape walking trail passes by Sugarloaf Rock – journey along this track and you might see humpback and southern right whales off the coast. You can access Sugarloaf Rock via Sugarloaf Rock Road west of Dunsborough. Dunsborough is approximately three hours drive south of Perth.
