We arrived here as part of the Big Downunder VT tagalong car trip 2013 and stayed for the night in a cabin at the Wave Rock Resort right on the lake front. Cabins here are relatively cheap if you have a few people in your party. Don't expect a flash resort because it is located in the middle of the bush.... but that is all part of the adventure.
Wave Rock itself is about 15 metres high and is quite stunning. You don't have to walk far to see it which is good. There are other attractions here such as hippos yawn which as the name suggests - looks like a big hippo yawning - Mulka's Cave and the Humps. There are also plenty of bush walks for the adventurous.
In wildflower season (August to November) this place comes alive with colour.
As part of our trip, hubby gave us all wildflower books which were colour coded and made a list of wildflowers for us to find. The completion was heating up!
I found a bunch of orchids (cowslip orchids). They were first orchids that I had seen this trip.
I was primed to do some night photography, in particular taking shots of the stars and milky way and some light painting.
Unfortunately the weather put a damper on the stars and milky way shots but I did find an old army tank just outside our cabin and set up for a bit of fun with light painting.

If you want to head straight on down to Albany, the quickest route is via Lake Grace. There is not much to do at Lake... more travel advice
I recommend this restaurant. Actually Wave Rock Motel located in Hyden has a few different eating venues but we chose... more travel advice
