Icon of the South West

Sugarloaf Rock, Leeuwin Naturaliste National Park, Western Australia, Australia

Sugarloaf Rock is arguably one of the most impressive seascapes in Western Australia. Sugarloaf Rock is in the Leeuwin-Naturaliste National Park and this impressive rock formation dominates the coastline near Cape Naturaliste. Sugarloaf Rock is also a great place for bushwalking and bird watching and it is the only known nesting site in the south west of the red-tailed tropic bird. On this morning the rock and its surrounds were cast in beautiful light as clouds and rain approached over the Indian ocean.
