Hyden Rock | Stone Wave In Australia

Wave Rock in Western Australia is so named because that is exactly what it looks like: an ocean wave. It forms one side of a hill that is known as Hyden Rock. The granite rocks date back 2.63 billion years. Wave Rock is known as a flared slope because of its curving shape. Both Wave and Hyden rocks are located in Hyden Wildlife Park, a nature preserve of the small town of Hyden, east-southeast of Perth, Western Australia.

The natives considered the frozen wave a sacred place. Now this place is very popular with tourists who come here with surfboards to take pictures “on the wave”. The length of the cliff is 110 meters, and the height of its crest is 15 meters. The rock got its name due to its bizarre appearance resembling a huge wave. This form has formed over many millions of years due to leaching and weathering of rocks. Scientists suggest that rainwater washed away the soil layer, while exposing the solid rock surface. Vertical stripes appeared due to rains that washed rocks. In their place appeared vertical stripes of red, yellow and gray.

Many tourists come to see Stone Wave annually. Many of them like to be photographed by a cliff in the pose of a surfer. Each year, near the Stone Wave, a music festival is held, to which performers from different countries come. The festival was named after the wave - "Wave Rock Weekender". (First Photo Source)
