Australian wave rock is the eighth wonder of the world. It is not an independent rock, but a series of weathered rocks, such as Hayden Stone 100 meters north and Homer Rock and Camel Rock, which resemble the mouth of a hippo. Wave Rock, standing in the desert of central Western Australia, is a well-known tourist attraction in Australia, 350 kilometers from Perth, the capital of Western Australia. Wave rock is one of the most peculiar parts of the northern part of Hyden. It is 15 meters high and 110 meters long. The undulating nature of wave rock is like a huge wave in the sweeping sea. It is quite spectacular. There is another beautiful rock near the wave rock, named Ma Kou. It is a hollow rock, shaped like the mouth of a hippo. Several kilometers north, there is also a group of odd rocks called hump rock. This region of Western Australia is also known for its gold production. In the 1980s and 1990s, thousands of people came here to look for gold. Later, gold seekers flocked elsewhere, but now the old and new gold mines here are still mining gold. Wave Rock is located near Hyden, 340 kilometers east of Perth. It is about 5 hours'drive from Perth, the capital of Western Australia, to Haiton, 340 kilometers southeast. This single rock, eroded by wind and sand for a long time, is in the shape of huge waves. It is 15 meters high. There are many stripes of different colors on the rock, crossing the Darling Mountains and magnificent. Jarrah Forests, with its unique natural scenery, is a famous tourist attraction in Western Australia. After the baptism of natural forces, the surface of wave rocks is depicted as a depression shape, coupled with the erosion of accumulated wind and rain and the sharp temperature difference in the morning and evening, gradually eroding into the shape of wave rocks. The whole process of erosion evolution is very slow, but the landscape presented in front of us is so spectacular that the power of nature is really enormous.
Wave Rock is a famous natural landscape in Western Australia. It is very huge, like a huge solidified wave, and it is very open around. There are huge rocks everywhere. Its shapes are very strange. It's quite exciting to take pictures here. It feels like surfing. It's full of lens. It's absolutely worth taking pictures.
It's 340 kilometers from Perth. It's recommended to stay in Hayden, which is 4 kilometers from Wave Rock, for one night. However, no hotel can be found here on major websites. We found the only house on airbnb, wave rock country cottage, with two halls and three rooms, suitable for a family size. There's a big campsite next to Wave Rock. If you don't want to go camping, you can also stay in the nearby wave rock motel, where the restaurant stays open until 9:30 p.m. and the bar stays open very late. There's a wave rock lakeside resort right next to the wave rock, which should be good.
Wave rock is a section of Hyden rock, 100 meters long and 14 meters high. Wave rock is the existence of natural sculpture, people can not help feeling and awe the nature of the ghost axe magic. Perfect surface, dynamic stripes, smooth wall. Touching it is like passing through time, meeting the dew and hearing the tide. Now, the echo of heartbeat comes from the valley and heart. The explanatory sign shows the origin of the wave rock - "the surface of this granite (also known as flared slope skirt rock) is the result of water wheathering. Water seeps beneath the surface rocks and shapes them. When the dry season comes, the surface is dried, and the process of "shaping" slows down. Because deep groundwater always exists below, the rock weathering speed is faster than the surface, thus gradually forming concave surface. This process continues, and the wave rocks we see now show several curvatures. The lines on the surface of wave rocks are due to the chemical action of carbon and hydrogen when rainwater washes away the surface, thus forming black, gray, red, coffee and yellowish stripes on the surface of wave rocks. These lines make the rocks look more vivid, like rolling waves. There is a long artificial stone wall at the top of the wave rock, which can lead rainwater into nearby dams to store fresh water.
Wonderful World Scenery; Get this tour straight, but the road is a little far.
Very distinctive Australian geographic landscape, strongly recommended. It is recommended to live directly in a camp on the edge of the undulating rocks, which is free of tickets and can take pictures of the scenery in the morning and evening when the light is good. During the period of rapeseed blossom, climbing to the top of the wave rock, the scenery is very beautiful. There is a hillside which has changed color because of the rain, it is very beautiful. If you want to have a good time here, you should stay for two nights. You can buy living materials from Haideng Town not far away. By the way, you can take a picture of Haideng's signboard, Tin Man.
We drove on our own from 7:00 a.m. in Perth, passing through Yorktown and then rushed back from Yorktown to Wave Rock arrived around 12:00 p.m. Wave Rock. After a long lunch, we saw Wave Rock and then climbed to its top, and rushed back to Lupus. Running alone costs more than 700 kilometers, which is not worth it.
