Abous Us

Wave Rock, Hyden, Western Australia 

Walking through a carpet of Spring Western Australian wildflowers near Wave Rock, under a bright blue sky, listening to the wind in the Sheoak trees, you will come across a magnificent, prehistoric rock formation. You will marvel at the size and shape, eroded by the weather over millions of years. This is Wave Rock.

Climb to the top and enjoy the view of the surrounding farmland, shiny salmon gum-forests, and the beautiful salty scrubby bush. This is Australia at its finest. Take a short walk to Hippo’s Yawn, offering spectacular views of the orchids and wildflowers in spring.

Enjoy a brewed coffee and homemade food at the Wildflower Shoppe Cafe. Here you will also find the entrance to the Wildlife Park, home to koalas, wombats, white kangaroos and an array of beautifully coloured birds.

Spend hours exploring the Miniature Soldier Museum and the Antique Lace Collection.

Wonder at how our forefathers survived whilst clearing the land in the early 1900’s in the Pioneer Museum. Take a 16 kilometre drive to the Humps and learn about our aboriginal history with the legend of Mulka at Mulka’s Cave. Climb through his living quarters to the top of the giant rock formation to look out towards the salt plains and patchwork paddocks.

Spend time in Hyden itself – a quaint WA country town, nestled amongst the Salmon Gums. Here you can browse the local shops and the streetscape art in the main street, which depicts the town’s history.

A variety of accommodation near Wave Rock is available for you to enjoy.
From the Wave Rock Hotel/Motel, to ensuite cabins and camping at the caravan park or lakeside cottages at the Wave Rock Resort overlooking Lake Magic – a photographer’s dream.
