What To Expect

Your day trip starts with the drive east of Perth to historical York, the first town founded in the Avon Valley. Stop here to enjoy morning tea in town (own expense) before continuing to Hyden, pausing along the way at a dog cemetery in honor of working Australian sheepdogs.

In Hyden, check out Hippo’s Yawn, a rock formation that resembles a yawning hippopotamus, and then sit down to an Aussie Country-Style lunch at the Wildflower Shop, and and choose to visit a wildlife park or check out the Antique Lace Collection. After eating, make the drive to Wave Rock, one of Western Australia’s most popular natural landmarks, a 50-foot-tall (15-meter) rock formation that resembles a giant ocean wave.

Next, head to Mulka’s Cave, a large boulder with a hollowed-out, cave-like shape, and the Humps, a granite formation. Then start the drive back to Perth, taking a different route that includes a stop in a country town of for afternoon tea (own expense). If you’re taking this tour during wildflower season (typically September to November), you’ll make stops during the day for views and photo opportunities of Western Australia’s renowned wildflowers.

Your day trip ends when you arrive back in Perth in the late evening.
