Wave Rock

Wave Rock in Hyden is one of the most famous rock formations in Western Australia’s rugged Golden Outback located 340km east of Perth. Caused by weathering and water erosion, this multi-coloured granite rock forms the shape of a wave frozen at the point of breaking and came into the spotlight when it was featured in the National Geographic Magazine in 1967.

Stand under the striking 15 metre high wave formed over 2700 million years ago and admire the beautiful colourings of the rock formed by the rain washing and dissolving minerals down its face – a stunning photo opportunity! Time your visit to coincide with the Western Australian wildflower season (August to November) and witness wildflowers in bloom with dazzling vivid colours.

Just nearby, admire evidence of ancient Aboriginal culture at Mulka’s Cave. This eerie cave is believed to have once been the home of Mulka the Terrible, an Aboriginal man who was ostracised from his tribe and took to hunting local children. See ancient cave paintings and faint hand prints believed to be those of Mulka. Plus, visit the nearby Wildlife Park to get up close and personal with kangaroos including the rare white kangaroo.
