Monkey Rock is accessible from Lights Beach Road just a short drive east of Lights Beach, south-west of Denmark. Take Ocean Beach Road out of Denmark Town and turn right on Lights Beach road. You will see the sign and carpark for Monkey Rock on the right before you arrive at Lights Beach. If you've reached the Lights Beach Tearooms you've gone too far.
The hike to Monkey Rock is along either the vehicle access road or a footpath which winds through the trees to the peak of Monkey Rock. The path is part of the Bibbulmun Track which winds its way from Albany in the east all the way to Perth far to the north.
Once you reach the pinnacle there is a pathway over the rocks with stairs to help on the difficult parts. Check the MAP of Denmark which includes Moneky Rock, to get your bearings.
Monkey Rock has amazing views of Nullaki Peninsula enclosing the Wilson Inlet.
Monkey Rock , only slightly lower than Mount Hallowell to the north,
has spectacular views over William
Bay National Park (west) and Ratcliffe Bay, Ocean
Beach and Nullaki peninsula, home of Anvil
Beach. Wilson Head marks the eastern perimeter
of Ratcliffe Bay, stretching out into the Great Southern Ocean.
There is a 4wd track leading from the lower car park to Monkey
Rock, though this is sometimes closed and driving is not advised
in winter. The 4 kilometre return walk from the car park is quite
an climb, so come prepared.
