Monkey Face Cliff Walk is a 400m, grade 4 Return hike located in Watagans National Park New South Wales. The hike should take approximately 30 mins to complete.


This short but steep walk to the base of an attractive cliff is worthwhile. The walk travels through open forest with gum trees and Xanthorhoea trees to eventually follow timber steps steeply to the base of the Monkey Face cliff. This cliff is used by rock climbers and abseiling parties so be aware that people may be above you. Spend some time exploring the base of cliff before returning the same way.
