Formed more than 2700 million years ago, Wave Rock is 14 metres high, and 110 metres long.

The granite cliff resembling a wave about to break is on the northern face of a large erosional remnant called Hyden Rock.

This curved cliff face has been rounded by weathering and water erosion, undercutting its base and leaving a rounded overhang.

It was formed by water dissolving and re-depositing chemicals in the granite as it runs down the cliff face.

You can walk to the top of Wave Rock and have a great view of the surrounding area and observe how it is used as the catchment for Hyden's water supply.

Nearby are the other interesting formations of The Hyppos Yaun, The Humps and Mulkas Cave. You should also visit Lake Magic and have a did in the salt baths (entry fees apply)
