Wave Rock is one of the most famous landmarks in Western Australia. This is one of the places I always wanted to see, despite so many people saying it's not that great. Unfortunately, it was the only place on the trip in which the weather did not cooperate. Much smaller in person than it may appear in photos, the rock formation is one of two famous water-in-stone formations in the world: See also The Wave in the US! How many people have photographed both in the same year? Some photos show the view you don't see in most photos: from the top, where you can walk along a crumbling rock wall and peer over the edge. At bottom: Hippos Yawn! A funny-sounding rock formation just down the road.
