An early departure from Bruce Rock got us to Hyden / Wave Rock in time for Ken to get on an important call for work. This gave me an opportunity to do the set up / unhitching of the van with the kids and the little champs are getting into the swing of it, picking their jobs, (putting in the chocks, winding down the legs).
We decides to say 2 nights for a change of pace. The park was very nice and clean. Quaint old building for the office, new but freezing pool, basic play ground but kept them happy.
Opposit the park is a wildlife park, museum and cafe. All of which we enjoyed. Funny place to find the largest lace display in Australia. But was fascinating very well curated and worth the $5 a head entry.
The first evening we were lucky enough to catch a local fundraiser for the kids Canberra trip. An outdoor movie night and sausage sizzle. Was a great night. The locals were very welcoming but a cold snap caught every off guard and we froze.
We got to the end of ‘Coco’ and back to Goldilocks for a quick blast from the desil heater and we were toasty warm again.
Wave Rock and the surrounding rock feature have been beautiful and a very interesting geological interlude.
Could have spent longer here. The area has wonderful bike paths connecting the caravan park with Hyden town (3km), Lake Magic (6km), and other local sights of interested. Unfortunately we only realized this as we left so didn’t fully enjoy this aspect.
