Wave Rock, Hyden, Western Australia. A wonderful inselberg, which is surprisingly similar to a breaking ocean wave, soars abruptly in Hyden Wildlife Park. The formation is 14 m (46 ft) high and 110 m (360 ft) long. The wall attracts around 140 000 tourists annually.
The multicolored granite wall was formed millions of years ago. Surrounded with a nature reserve and bushland, the site offers a great spot to admire the unique landmark. Wave Rock of course has a significant cultural value to Aborigines, who cherish and appreciate their majestic land.
