Wave Rock and its surroundings tour

Discover the remarkable Wave Rock, a natural rock formation measuring over 14 meters high and shaped exactly like a tall breaking wave. Easily the most spectacular of Australia’s wave rock formations, it was believed to be feared by the original aborigine settlers and is now home to an annual music festival. Head East from Perth towards the rock and visit the historic town of York, travel through the Darling Range and stop off at Hippo’s Yawn, Mulka’s Cave, Corrigin and Babakin.

Head East out of Perth, cross the Swan River Causeway and take the Great Eastern Highway out into the Darling Ranges, home to beautiful scenery and wildlife in equal measure. Keep your eyes peeled for cockatoos and galahs. Explore the historic town of York before witnessing Hippo’s Yawn, the rock formations that resemble the gaping mouth of a hippopotamus.

Then arrive at the main stop on this spectacular tour, Wave Rock. An example of nature at its most intriguing, it really does appear as if a giant wave crest is forming out of the rock. Admire its beauty and listen as your guide leads you along the base and top of the rock and tells you all about its history and cultural significance. Satisfy your hunger with a delicious chicken buffet lunch at the Wave Rock Visitor Centre Café before continuing the tour with a trip to the native Wildlife Park and the Antique Lace collection.
