Perth Return Wave Rock, York, Wildflowers and Aboriginal Culture Full Day Tour

 

Tour Highlights
  • York

    Situated in the Avon Valley, York is one of Western Australia's most picturesque towns with charming architecture. This town was the first inland European settlement in Western Australia, founded back in 1831. Be sure to take a short stroll along the main town strip and see many of the old buildings which are still in use today.

  • Dog Cemetery

    Here you will find owners loving memories of their faithful four legged companions. Stroll through the cemetery and see the elaborate headstones and touching messages.

  • Hippos Yawn

    Another rocky outcrop in the area, named because of its resemblance to a hippopotamus yawning.

  • Mulka's Cave

    Hear the Aboriginal legend of Mulka and view the imprints of his hands which can still be seen in the cave today.

  • Wave Rock

    East of Perth you will find Wave Rock, a giant surf like landmark of multi-coloured granite which is over 2700 million year old. This natural monument is so iconic as it appears to crash into the ground below – creating a wave like landscape.

  • Wildlife Park and Antique Lace Collection

    If time permits wander through the wildlife park where you can enjoy time seeing kangaroos, emus, wallabies, wombats, koalas, lizards and a wide range of birds. Alternatively view the antique lace collection, dating back to the 1600's. These hand and machine made lace products are housed in beautiful hand crafted cabinets.

  • Wildflowers (Seasonal)

    Stop to view wildflowers throughout the tour whilst they are in season. Varieties include the orange flowering Christmas Tree, Kangaroo Paw, Banksia, Wattle and Everlastings.

Journey through Western Australia's wheatbelt to Hyden – home of Wave Rock, truly one of Australia's most incredible natural landforms. Leaving Perth head through the Perth Hills and escarpment and enter farming country. Heading east, enjoy morning tea (own expense) at historic York, the first township founded in the Avon Valley. From there travel the Wheatbelt Highway through the agricultural towns of Corrigin and Kondinin; through outback farming country – giving a glimpse of Australian country life.

Stop briefly at the infamous Dog Cemetery, a shrine to man's best friend and an integral part of farming life. Then visit Hippo's Yawn, a rock formation which resembles a hippo yawning. Then break for an Aussie country style lunch at the Wildflower Shop. Whilst here, visit either a Wildlife Park, view a unique Antique Lace Collection – even featuring lace from Lady Diana, or visit the amazing Toy Soldier Museum.

Then move on to see the spectacular prehistoric rock formation of Wave Rock and sacred Aboriginal sites. Leaving Wave Rock, visit Hippo's Yawn and Mulka's Cave.

Return to Perth with a stop at a remote country town for a light afternoon tea and snack (own expense) arriving approximately at 20:30.
