Description

 Over 2,700 million years in the making, today it's a popular tourist destination.

Located near the Wheatbelt town of Hyden, getting there from Perth is a pleasant 340-kilometre drive (approximately three to four hours) through picturesque rolling farmlands to wide vistas of wheat and canola fields.

This 110-metre long multi-coloured granite cliff is shaped remarkably like a huge wave about to crash onto the bush. Pose on the rock face and surf the giant wave or see it from a different perspective by following the walk trails around the base and over the top.

After winter rains, you'll be surrounded by a sea of dazzling colour as Western Australian wildflowers bloom in their billions.

Nearby, a collection of over 450 ancient rock paintings cover the walls of Mulka's Cave, telling the story of a local Aboriginal legend.

Just outside Hyden, the wildlife park invites you to meet its koalas and white kangaroos, with the Wildflower Shop and Cafe offering souvenirs and refreshments.
