Wagon Rock Lookout

Wagon Rock Look­out is a large granite outcrop on the side of Mount Clar­ence, just 400m from the city centre.

Surrounded by large rock formations scattered through nat­ural bushland, Wagon Rock pro­vides pan­ora­mic views of the city and surround­ing countryside. A safety rail surrounds the look­out area.

The views from Wagon Rock take in the Stirl­ing Ranges and Porongorups to the North, Mount Melville to the West, all the way to the Albany Foreshore and beyond to the South.

With the city centre close by, you have a clear view of the main streets, shop­ping areas and parks.

To re­ach Wagon Rock from the city centre, walk 300m to the East­ern end of Serp­ent­ine Road and follow the 300m Grade 3 walk­ing trail to the look­out. Take care as the the trail has sections up to a 20% gradi­ent and in­cludes steps, bare stone and vari­able foot­ing.

Wagon Rock pro­vides pan­ora­mic views of the city and surround­ing countryside.

For easier access, drive to the end of Serp­ent­ine Road, turn left onto Munster Avenue and follow it to Adelaide Place. Turn right for a small carpark. From there the look­out is an easy 25m stroll.

Please take care to re­ma­in behind the safety rail­ing and keep small children close at hand as there is a signific­ant drop on the West side.
