Located near the Wheatbelt town of Hyden, is one of Australia’s most recognisable landforms.

Rising 15 metres from the ground and more than 100 metres long, the rock looks like a giant surf wave of multicoloured granite about to crash onto the bush below. It’s believed this amazing formation was more than 2,700 million years in the making.

Take a bush walk around the rock to see native flowers and birds. The rock also plays host to a popular music festival each year in spring.

Located 340 kilometres south-east of Perth, a four hour drive through picturesque farmland. You can drive yourself following the the Pathways to the Rock self drive trail, or there are many day trip coach tours from Perth.
