“Look for the Dolphins Passing Around CapeNaturaliste”
When I first saw Sugarloaf Rock it was an impressive sight. The easy to reach lookout really is a great viewing platform and definitely a place not to miss. From here you can either go for a walk and look for the dolphins passing around Cape Naturaliste, or when it’s calm you can walk down to the water for a swim.
When I was there I thought how amazing it would look at night so I went and had dinner up the road in Dunsborough then came back out at as the stars came out. It was a clear night and the view of the stars from Sugarloaf Rock was really quite awesome.
This picture captures a fond memory at Wellington National Park. What surprised me the most about this experience was that we were less than an hour from Bunbury and two and a half from Perth, yet we felt like we could have been miles away from anywhere.
My girlfriend and I took a trip down to the South West for the ANZAC Day long weekend and based ourselves in Porongurup. We had checked the forecast for the weekend and made the decision that Saturday would be the ideal time to climb Bluff Knoll.
The one thing that will drive you to make the easy three and a half hour drive south of Perth to Margaret River, at any time of year, is the prospect of indulging as many of your passions as possible in a single day.
