Wave Rock, WA

Located near the Wheatbelt town of Hyden, is one of Australia’s most recognisable landforms.

Rising 15 metres from the ground and more than 100 metres long, the rock looks like a giant surf wave of multicoloured granite about to crash onto the bush below. It’s believed this amazing formation was more than 2,700 million years in the making.

Take a bush walk around the rock to see native flowers and birds. The rock also plays host to a popular music festival each year in spring.

Located 340 kilometres south-east of Perth, a four hour drive through picturesque farmland. You can drive yourself following the the Pathways to the Rock self drive trail, or there are many day trip coach tours from Perth.

There is a wide range of things to see and do in Hyden Relax! Stay Longer, and try the 2 Day Experience! Plenty to see!

From walk trails to Indigenous tours and exploring the various landforms from the rock to Hippo's Yawn, The Humps as well as the iconic Lake Magic and The Salt Pond - make sure you stop in at the Wildlife Park and if it is Spring, embark on a beautiful journey to view the magnificent Wildflowers in Hyden.
