Worth the hike?

Monkey Rock doesn't look like such a big deal from the bottom. Sure, they're big rocks poking out of the treetops, but why climb all the way up there?

Because the view is spectacular!

Hike; come prepared

The 4 kilometre return walk from the car park is quite an climb, so come prepared with water and a few snacks - and bring your camera. Make sure you have proper hiking gear and are able to make the walk. Obey all signs and changes in route that may be posted.

When you reack the top you have to climb out onto the rocks. The path is clear but you will need to use your hands to get past the first boulder. From there it's a gentle stroll to the summit. And wow, what a view!

The views east over the Wilson Inlet, Ocean Beach and Nullaki Peninsula as well as the views west over William Bay National Park are worth the climb. The great expanse of the Southern Ocean fills the horizon. It's easy to see the curvature of the earth from this lookout point. Brilliant. Click here to see a Monkey Rock Map.

If it's windy or raining we'd advise NOT to go up. The rocks can be dangerous, so be careful.
