The site of Wave Rock was used as a backdrop for an episode of Japan's Next Top Model in 2008.
The colours of the Wave at Wave Rock are caused by the rain washing chemical deposits (carbonates and iron hydroxide) down the face, forming vertical stripes of grays, reds and yellows.
In addition to being a tourist attraction, Wave Rock has been converted in to a catchment for the town's water supplies, with a foot-high concrete wall around Hyden Rock directing rainfall into a storage dam.
Wave Rock's rounded shape has been caused by weathering & water erosion which has undercut the base and left a rounded overhang. This happened about 60,000,000 years ago.
