Wave Rock, Hyden
In a country full of geological wonders, Wave Rock stands as one of the most beautiful. The smooth northern side of Hyden Rock hill resembles an ocean wave about 14 m (46 ft) high and 110 m (360 ft) long. The strange beauty of the granite inselberg rock's beige, brown, black, white, and gray vertical stripes owes itself to spring water running down and dissolving minerals into the wall. Follow the rock contours on a walkway above it or on the pathway at its base. You can reach the nearby town of Hyden in four hours from Perth via a sealed road or one hour by air. Plan my day in Hyden using traveler tips and tourist information provided by Inspirock.

Wave rock is worth the trip and the caravan park is clean and tidy. Amenities were good. No to or wifi to the sites is a pill, but watched the footy on the TVs in the camp kitchen. more »
Worth stopping and having a look if you're in the area travelling. Also worth checking out the other things in the area. Worth climbing around the top and reading the information plaques to gain a bit more knowledge about the area. I'll be honest, I did expect more than what I saw. It could be a little underwhelming if you do a trip just to see it.
This is an experience standing beneath the wave. Lots of Chinese tourists enjoying the spectacular sights. Lunch at the Wildflower Shoppe generous with the staff staying in good humour despite the crowd
