Full description

Journey through Western Australia’s Wheatbelt to Hyden – home of Wave Rock, truly one of Australia’s most incredible natural landforms. 

Leaving Perth head through the Perth Hills and escarpment and enter farming country. Heading east, purchase a morning tea at historic York, the first township founded in the Avon Valley.

From there travel the Wheatbelt Highway through the agricultural towns of Corrigin and Kondinin, through outback farming country. Get a glimpse of Australian country life by passing the infamous Dog Cemetery, a shrine to man’s best friend and an integral part of farming life.

Then visit Hippo’s Yawn, a rock formation that resembles a hippo yawning. Break for an Aussie country-style lunch at the Wildflower Shop. While here, visit a Wildlife Park, view a unique Antique Lace Collection – even featuring lace from Lady Diana, or visit the amazing Toy Soldier Museum.

Then move on to see the spectacular prehistoric rock formation of Wave Rock and sacred Aboriginal sites. Leaving Wave Rock, head next to Mulka’s Cave. Return to Perth with a comfort stop on the way, arriving back in Perth in the evening.

    Long drive with forever commentry about the history of what we would see and Perth economy. At times amusing. Interesting buildings in York. The farmers are having it tough with the salt. Wave rock was as I expected, but so enjoyed being able to climb up top and get the great 360 degree view. Intrigued with our lunch venue and accompanying stores.

    Was looking forward to this trip and it exceed my expectations. Our driver/tour guide Chris was so knowledgeable that it made a huge difference! He was talking on the micro during the while trip. Wave Rock is truly a special and unique place. We had plently of time to visit, taking pics and even wonder around on top of the rock. It is a long day, many hours on the bus, but so worthy. We also visited York and enjoyed a nice and tasty meal at Wave Rock Cafe, where there were kangaroos and other Australian wildlife. Absolutely recommend this trip and visit Wave Rock!

    Amazing trip. Loved Wave Rock. But also lived the Lace Museum, the Toy Soldiers and animal park. First stop was York. Lovely and could have spent a day there exploring. Our guide was amazing full of information about the local wildflowers as well as the geography and history of the areas we travelled through. Excellent trip, highly recommend this.
