One of Australia's
biggest waves is also the furthest from any ocean! Wave Rock rises 15
metres above the outback plain and was over 2,700 million years in
the making but 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.
