Fantastic place to stay – quite an oasis after staying at roadhouse accommodation! Everything we could possibly need, so comfortable and inviting – we all wanted to stay longer. Sarah D

A great cosy place to stay while visiting wave rock. The kitchen is fully equipped with everything you need and beds are comfortable. The living room is decorated nicely and great for families and friends to hang out in. Will recommend to friends for sure. Jacqueline L

We had a lovely stay in the cottage. We were 2 couples + a 2 years old, just perfect!
Really well maintained. Everything you could possibly need is there! Nice BBQ area and comfy bed. Great value for money. Will recommend to my friend and will stay again if travelling around. Bene J

Local Attractions & Events
There is always something to see and do and plenty happening in Hyden. Here at the Wave Rock Country Cottage we provide you with the latest information to help you get the most out of your stay.

See our list of the local attractions and events that are well worth a look.

The Humps & Mulka's Cave
A 15 minute drive north of Wave Rock you will see a “giant” lurching out of the bushland. This massive granite rock formation is known as the Humps – grab your hat, sun screen and water bottle and explore!

Walk Trails

Gnamma Trail (1,220 metres) On this trail are ten interpretive panels to help you understand this landscape using the words and illustrations of local Noongar elders and artists. It features two Gnamma (rock holes) and a lizard trap, all believed to have been used by Noongar people for centuries.

Kalari Trail (1,670 metres) The trail climbs steadily (but not steeply) to the summit, which affords outstanding panoramic views of the outlying farming land. Interpretive signs focus on the fascinating geology of the rock and the plants that grow on it.

Mulka’s Cave

The name “Mulka” comes from an Aboriginal Legend associated with the cave. As you enter the cave (take a few moments for your eyes to adjust) and look at the walls and note the many hand stencils believed to representing adults and children.

Salt Pond
Close to Lake Magic, a large local salt lake, Denis Collins constructed a 20m round, 6m deep swimming pool-like gypsum pond whose buoyancy and therapeutic properties are greater than those of the Dead Sea. You must try to understand the special euphoria created by floating around in the middle of this dramatically beautiful landscape with the sounds of the festival off in the distance. It is about an 800m walk from the site.
The Widlife Park
Three hectares of natural bushland creates a beautiful haven for the native and exotic animals and birds that live at the Wave Rock Wildlife Park. Don’t miss the white, grey or silver kangaroos and wallabies, koalas, golden possums, deers, donkeys, alpacas, camels, exotic poultry, water birds, swans, owls, betongs, wombats and many more.

Many other native animals and birds like the area so much that they have moved in, so keep an eye out for native birds and lizards that roam freely throughout the park.

Tables and seating are provided throughout the park for your convenience. Please feel welcome to bring your own picnic lunch or alternatively you can purchase lunch, snacks and drinks at the Wildflower Shoppe Cafe.

This wildlife park is solely cared for by a founder of the tourism industry in Hyden Valerie Mouritz, who has dedicated her life to these animals. Her love for elephants is a theme evident throughout the park.

Wave Rock & Hippos Yawn
Wave Rock is a granite cliff 15 metres high and 110 metres long. It’s rounded-like shape has been caused by weathering and water erosion which has undercut the base and left a rounded overhang. Water from the springs running down the rock during wetter months dissolves minerals adding to the colouring of the wave. In 1960, crystals from Hyden Rock were dated at being 2700 million years old, which are amongst the oldest in Australia.
Wave Rock Weekender
The Wave Rock Weekender is on again this year over the September Long weekend. The weekender is an intimate boutique festival experience with a soul bigger than the 270 million-year-old Wave Rock itself, where various artists come together with people from all over the world to camp out at the Wave Rock Caravan Park and enjoy great booze and food, films. High-quality caravan park camping with full park facilities and a huge salt pool for swimming and most of all – the amazing Wave Rock!
Wildflowers & Orchids
During spring the bushland comes alive with an explosion of colour. Every way you turn, there will be a different colour and variety of amazing flowers to see. It is a photographer’s delight and you will spend hours searching for the rare orchids that grow in the area. Some of the more common plants growing in the district include; Verticordias, Cricket Ball Hakea, Pigface, Bottlebrush Grevillea, Blue-eyed Smoke Bush, Granite Bottlebrush, Tinsel Flower and Flame Grevillea. Some of the orchids that you will find include; Spider, Donkey, Bee, Cowslip, Ant, Dragon, and different Sun Orchids.
The Lace Place
Check out the new Lace Place website at www.waverocklaceplace.com.au

The Lace Place Museum was built in 1990 to house the Blackburn Collection. Mrs Margaret Blackburn OAM JP of Perth (1920 -1990) had a keen interest in history and lace. To her own inherited family collection, she added pieces from Australia and overseas and was able to incorporate several smaller collections. Her Order of Australia Medal was awarded for service to Commercial Education.

The Blackburn Collection, offered as a bequest to the Western Australian Museum, was later purchased by the Mouritz family in Hyden. The Lace Place was officially opened on June 29, 1993 by his Excellency the Governor General of Western Australia, Sir Francis Burt.

The cabinets designed by Mrs Blackburn and Russel Mouritz are made from Western Australian Jarrah by Mr Haddad from Hadded Fine Furniture. Information folios are provided.

The original collection is complimented by antique gowns and wedding dresses from the Valerie Mouritz Collection. Additions by gift and purchase are frequently made to both collections.

The display was arranged by lace maker / curator Olwyn Scott, Valerie Mouritz and Sheenagh Collins.
