you understand how it got the name. Lunch is taken at the Wildflower
Then it's off to see the spectacular Wave Rock. Wave Rock is about
110 meters long and 15 meters high and really resembles a perfect surfers
wave in the ocean.
Many people wonder how wave rock was formed. Experts believe the feature
has been formed by weathering
and water erosion, which has undercut the base, leaving a rounded
overhang. However it was formed it is absolutely stunning and certainly
worth the visit.
then visit the ancient Gnamma Holes, these are holes dug by aboriginal
to collect water and usually found in a series of three holes. See The
Humps, beautiful granite outcrops and finally Mulka's Cave, a place

legend associated with Mulkas Cave and how Mulka's handprints, on
the walls of the cave, are higher than others of his tribe.
