Wave Rock Tips (6)

Wave Rock -Hyden

This is an amazing site!! Strange rock formation hey!! It's even better walking underneath it and looking up. You'll find it right in the scrub in the middle of nowhere just west of Margaret River. You can do a day trip there and it's definately well worth it!!

Wave Rock, just out of Hyden is 4 hours from Perth. Although you can do it in a day, it is so much better to hire a car and stay there in a cabin overnight (See picture). If you can spend more days checking out the Western Australian southern countryside, then I totally recommend it....... especially in Wildflower season.

Check out my Perth to Albany Itinerary for more great info and tips. :o)

Walk the loop at Wave Rock

I was here 2013 with other vt members on a 5 day tag-along trip and was very excited to actually see Wave Rock,it is a fantastic formation and the colours are striking.
I also walked the loop that takes you around to Hippos Yawn and back via the bush track to the car park.
The day I was there it had been raining so you need to be careful and where strong walking shoes.
Don't forget your camera for that top pic..look for the orchids and other wild flowers on the walk,they are simply beautiful.

Go to Hyden (320 kilometres from Perth) and see the wave rock.
The Wave Rock is 15 by 110 metres and has vertical bands of colour. These colours are formed by washing chemicals down its face. In the area there are several other rock formations such as the Hippo's yawn, The Falls, and the Breakers and these are all without walking distance of the wave rock - go and see them it is worthwhile!

5 kilometres east of the small...

5 kilometres east of the small town of Hyden in Western Australia’s wheat belt is the Wave Rock. This has to be the state’s strangest rock formation. The large granite wave has been created by chemical erosion over thousands of years, and a reaction with rainwater has caused the red and grey stripes on the rock. Nearby there are other rock formations such as the Hippo’s yawn, the breakers and the Facing Wave Rock. While about 20 kilometres northeast of the town of Hyden is Mulka’s Cave and here there are several Aboriginal rock paintings to be seen.
There is a visitor’s centre in Hyden (08) 9880 5182 which is open daily.
