Wave Rock is much more than its famous wave like curve but part of a granite rock field that spans hundreds of kilometres south to the coast near Esperance and east past Norseman to the Nullabor Plain.
The curve is just the face of this Granite Inselberg.
The huge rock hold little forests on top.
A drinking water dam at its side
Views across the adjoining country side.
And rock formations carved by time
The rock has an edge effect forest around its base. The water run off from the granite rock providing a water supply in an otherwise arid place.
At a nearby granite outcrop there is a cave with some very old aboriginal rock art.
Hand stencils are considered some of the earliest forms of rock art and this cave near Wave Rock has many examples.
These can be seen clearly if you enlarge the photos.
So there is much more to Wave Rock than can bee seen at first glance.
