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.

    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.

    Gordon, our guide, was so friendly and funny. His knowledge of the history and all things associated with all the areas we visited was impressionable. It was a very long day…13 hours, but each site was so interesting. We had a great group and Gordon was very considerate of the needs of each one of us.

    Great enjoyable day lots to see very knowledgeable Tour Driver (there is definitely room for just a day trip to YORK) Plenty of stops along the Trip… BUT all we can say the brochures don’t do the WAVE ROCK justice The enormity of this is to be SEEN …FANTASTIC.. The entire Set up on show is worth the journey (even great coffee at the well appointed cafe). The Lady how owns the show on the job and on the spot Lovely little town of HYDEN… This trip will not disappoint… Unlike another major one (which should be described as a gentle canoe ride through a bit of rough water). WAVE ROCK will not disappoint …. One To Do … MICK & TRUDY
