Jan 18, 2013 - Hyden
Het waren een lange 340 km tussen Perth en Hyden. We zijn enkele piepkleine plaatsen gepasseerd en hebben uren langs afgedane tarwe velden gereden. Onze bestemming is Wave Rock een rotsformatie is de vorm van een grote golf. De gekleurde banden die van boven naar onder lopen geven het geheel nog een meer realistische golf tekening. We hebben ook hierboven op gelopen. Aangezien we hier nu toch waren hebben we ook Hippo's yawn (geeuw van een nijlpaard) bezocht. We zitten hier nog maar eens in de middle of nowhere. Hyden telt 400 inwoners en...Jump to full entry
Nov 25, 2012 - Day 1 at Wave Rock ........ She was EXCITED !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Day 1 Week 1 Sunday; We averaged 20.1 lt per 100kms in fuel. There was a lot of hills getting out of Perth on the way to Wave Rock and we did over 400ks. Steph was so pleased to see this natural formation. We had to go climb it as soon as we had the van set up. What a surprise, the top of the rock was. The guard rail is hand made wall, the life that survives up there from tiny plants to large trees.. and the boulders that have eroded over thousands of years..so they are hollowed out, the views including Lake Magic which is 1km away, and...Jump to full entry
Apr 26, 2012 - We're off!!!!
With the help of neibhours, we managed to leave home exactly on time. 11.40am. T'Ann, the odometer showed 82,518km. (T'Ann is running a project with her school class) So far everything is going to plan, no drama's or hassles of any kind. Touch wood. Although watching Di try to get music out of the CD player with a DVD provided some light relief. The country is very dry and brown. All the stock dams that we could see were either dry or close to it. 4.40pm saw us arrive in Hyden with enough time to walk along and over Wave Rock at...Jump to full entry
Sep 11, 2011 - Aus - Day 130 - Wave Rock (Wheatbelt Country)
This is the most recognizable tourist attraction in the region. The granite rock near Hyden stretches 100 meters and stands 15 meters high in the shape of a giant wave about to crash over the surrounding bush and is over 2700 million-years-old. It was such a sight to behold, a rock that actually looks like a massive wave. The colors in the rock were amazing. We had to wait for a bit to get our pictures we wanted as there were two large tour bus groups (mostly grey nomads) that just rolled in as we arrived. We decided to hike up on top of...Jump to full entry

Apr 23, 2011 - Fancy a little wheat with a side of rock
After dropping our fellow A-team adventurer off at the airport we cruised inland to our first nights camping spot. We pulled in at York's finest information spot, if we had checked the map properly we would have seen there was a pleasant little river spot in town, oh well made a great spot for breakfast. Now York is a hustling bustling town, the place to be on a Saturday morning. We explored the little markets and lolly pop shop, decided to skip the sock shop and explore further inland. Wheat, wheat and yet more wheat!! We stopped at a...Jump to full entry
Mar 27, 2011 - Wave Rock
Gestern war ich nicht auf Rottnest Island sondern habe mir den Wave Rock angeschaut. 350 km sued-oestlich von Perth gibt es einen Felsen der wie eine Welle geformt ist. In der Naehe ist die "Mulca Cave", eine Hoehle. Mulcas Mutter hatte laut der Legende einen Mann geheiratet den sie nicht haben durfte, da sie Blutsverwandte waren. Mulca wurde als behindertes Kind geboren und konnte sich nicht in den Aboriginalkreis seiner Familie einfinden. Er war dumm, viel zu gross und unnuetz. Deswegen wurde er weggeschickt. Er lebte also sein Leben...Jump to full entry
Oct 3, 2010 - Dalwallinu to Hyden (Wave Rock)
Hyden 3 October 10 Well worth the trip to Hyden to see Wave Rock. There are a number of other rock formations that should also be seen ie The Humps, Hippos Yawn, Mulgas Cave. Some good walks and fantastic views from the rocks looking over the wheat belt country and once again the farmers are doing it tough this season. Also the little village at Wave Rock has a fascinating lace museum (ladies) with lacework dating back to the 16-1700’s. Van park there is quite small and fairly expensive so you might want to consider free camping in the area.Jump to full entry

Nov 10, 2009 - Day 112 – Albany to Wave Rock – SomewhereUP!!!!
The original plan today was to drive to Ravensthorpe, overnight and push on to Wave Rock (Hyden) tomorrow. Like most of our plans we change them on the fly so we took some back roads, most better than roads around Pemberton and got here a bit after lunch. The drive was long enough that you noticed a change in the weather, we saw a reading of 34 degrees later today, far hotter than the south coast To describe the drive we drove through the Stirling Ranges first but unfortunately where we wanted to go, Bluff Knol,l (WA’s highest peak), was...Jump to full entry
Jul 3, 2009 - A natural bridge, and a wave rock
Before we left the Albany area today, we went for a drive along the Frenchman Bay road until we found the Gap road, which lead us to the coast where there was what is known as the 'Torndirrup Natural Bridge'. It is a granite formed natural bridge, with a 25 metre sheer drop to the ocean, found in the area of the Torndirrup National Park. Whilst we were there just looking and watching out to the ocean, we could see the blows of whales off in the distance - too far away to take photos. Once we said goodbye to the ocean for a day or two, we...Jump to full entry
