‘A natural treasure’

You might not be able to surf it, but Australia’s lovely Wave Rock is one of the most stunning swells in the world. Made out of millennia of layers of stone, this natural formation looks as though it is petrified water. Over 2,700 million years in the making, today it’s a popular tourist destination. Wave Rock stands 15m high,100m long and its formation has fascinated geologists and the public for years. At different times of the day, Wave Rock changes color which is caused by minerals being washed down the rock. Many photographers enjoy their ability to play with light and perspective.

Nearby, a collection of over 450 ancient rock paintings cover the walls of Mulka’s cave. It is telling the story of a local Aboriginal legend. There is also a wildlife park that invites you to meet its koalas and white kangaroos, with the Wildflower shop and cafe offering souvenirs and refreshments. In the springtime there are millions of exotic and rare wildflowers around it.

On the other side of Wave Rock, a naturally occurring salt lake with a gypsum-based, a sandy surrounding, and the pretty inviting water. It is called Lake Magic. it is an enormous pool in which you can’t sink in, therefore, it sounds like magic right. It is salty to taste, but you can enjoy the fresh cool dip in the summers. This Lakes stands out of nowhere and is very rare to find around the world.

 

Located near the Wheatbelt town of Hyden, getting there from Perth (Australia) is a pleasant 340km drive (approximately  3-4 hours) through picturesque rolling farmlands to wide vistas of wheat and canola fields. There are one-stop flights available from India to Perth. From there you can have a cab to reach Hyden. Wave Rock is such a beautiful natural treasure in Australia that you will remain mesmerized after visiting it.
