Highlights
    What to Expect
    • After your complimentary city accommodation pick up journey east and a historical wonderland awaits, through the townships of historical Guildford, Midland, and the picturesque regions of Mundaring and Sawyers Valley, soaking up spectacular views of the Darling mountain Ranges along the way on your drive to York
    • Arrive in the historic Town of York, characterized by dainty cottages and colorful rose gardens and enjoy a walk along the majestic Avon River and the famous swinging bridge.
    • Drive past the large farms and huge machinery used in this wheat belt area, for which our country is so famous for.
    • Visit the wheat belt town of Corrigin with its unique Dog Cemetery, dedicated to man’s best friend. Dogs play a vital and important role with farmers in the rural regions of Australia.
    • Arrive in Hyden to marvel at the iconic Wave Rock, a huge granite block resembling the shape of an Ocean wave – in the middle of the desert which has colorful etchings believed to be 2.63 billion years old. The Wave rock according to geologists was at one time under the ocean and over centuries the receding waters left marks on the rock, which can be seen even today. Please note presently the closest ocean waters are almost 250 km’s away at the closest point.
    • Enjoy a light lunch in Hyden and an Eco-Walk up the Wave Rock to soak up the natural landscape and the wonderment of the surrounding countryside area.
    • Explore Hippo’s Yawn Cave – a rock resembling a yawning African hippopotamus, that stands at over 12 meters tall.
    • Pass through picturesque fruit orchards on the leisurely journey back to Perth.
    • Enjoy the seasonal wildflowers of the area, in season from mid-July to October.
    • After a wonderful day out travel back to Perth through fruit orchards & other local towns. This tour concludes either at your accommodation or you can choose to be dropped off at another location within Perth CBD.

    Though the Wave rock is interesting. The ride there is LONG and BORING! As for stopping in Historic York, it is only for a bathroom break, I did not even have time to take out my camera. Why we stopped at a dog cemetary is beyond me! It was devastating!!! I am a pet lover and I

    Gday Meryl - Thanks for your review for Wave rock. Yes sadly the Rock is a bit far to travel, but we cannot do anything about it.It is a unique natures phenomenon which people travel from across the world to view. The brochure & website informs everyone time of departing city & return times etc. The Dog cemetery being an emotional thing for you is noted.

    We took 2 tours with Aussie Perth Tours, Full day Wave Rock & Historic York, and Overnight Tour to Margaret River & Augusta. Both tours were excellent. Our Guide and Driver Mark made the long drives very interesting by updating us with details of the areas we were driving thru.
