We spent a night at Wave Rock Caravan Park in a self-contained cabin. Various other types of accommodation are also available here. It includes Ensuite powered suites, self-contained ensuite cabins, backpackers accommodation, caravan sites & camping sites. Facilities in the park includes swimming pool, barbecue area, spacious and clean camp kitchen, toilets, disabled facilities, laundry with washing machines, clothes dryers, clothes lines, playground, cricket pitch, campers kitchen, on site kiosk and covered eating area. And best of all, all sites are within walking distance to the base of Wave Rock.
Our so-called ‘self-contained cabin’ is located directly opposite the Kiosk close to the entrance. The cabin is a one bedroom self-contained ensuite cabin. It can sleep four people with a double and single bed in the bedroom and a single bed in the living area. There is a small fully equipped kitchen at the dining/living area with TV & air-cond. The bathroom comes with hot/cold showers. It’s just like any hotel room although it looks like a 40′ shipping container from the outside. Free wifi is however only available at the communal kitchen. In mid October, the cabin cost $130 per night.
Getting to the base of Wave Rock is a short walk away from our cabin. If you drive, it’ll take less than 30 seconds. Initially we tried booking for a room at Wave Rock Motel & Wave Rock Resort, unfortunately they were both fully booked. Wave Rock Motel is in Hyden town 4 km away, while Wave Rock Resort is 1.5 km away, closer to Lake Magic. Staying at the cabin is actually a great option. The close proximity to Wave Rock will enable you to visit it at your convenience and do it as many times as you wish even if it’s at night. Trust us, you’ll not be disappointed putting up here. Hotel amenities in the bush!
Visiting Wave Rock in mid October, you will be rewarded with varieties of wild flowers of different forms and colours which by itself is an attraction. They are scattered on the grounds among the bushes, trees and clearings. Beware though, picking of WILD flowers is an offence.
