Monkey Face lookout offers one of the best vantage points in the park, with sweeping views east across the Martinsville Valley. Cameras are a must here, and binoculars are a good idea too – you’ll want to take advantage of the terrific birdwatching opportunities, with glossy black cockatoos often seen here.
Settle down in a picnic spot under the ancient grass trees and ironbarks around the lookout, enjoying the view whilst you eat. In winter, the air is crisp and clean, refreshing and revitalising as you survey the land. In summer, the sun is hot and bright and casts a magnificent light over the valley, making this lookout a spectacular place to visit all year round.
