Fun things to do for all ages (part 2)

The first part of this rundown featured some must-see stops along the Pathways to Wave Rock, including some historic landmarks and fun community events. Keep reading to get the skinny on fascinating walking tracks, great playgrounds to burn off some of that road trip energy, and the best places in the Wheatbelt to watch the sun go down.

On foot

Vincent Street Heritage Walk

Follow this award-winning trail through the streets of Beverley—and get up close and personal with the beautiful heritage buildings along the way.

Hyden Scrap Metal Sculpture Walk

As you explore Hyden, stop in and see the sculptures made from old machinery and scrap metal that tell the history of Hyden. Made as part of a community art project, the sculptures depict scenes from before European settlement through to the first tourists in the 1970s.

And the exhibition is life-changing for some visitors! Trip Advisor user Z1278WOblakec says it best:

My life’s greatest moment

Can’t visit Australia without seeing these sculptures. The Gavin statue was perhaps the highlight of my entire visit down under. 13/10 would recommend.

The Humps and Mulka’s Cave

Explore The Humps—a massive granite rock formation with two interactive walking trails. Check out Gnamma Trail to learn about the landscape by exploring the words and illustrations of Noonger Elders and artists. Kalari Trail (1,670m) takes you on a steady (but not steep) climb to the summit—where you can take in outstanding views of the local landscape. Along the way, learn about local geology and plant life. 

Mulka’s Cave is associated with a Ballardong legend. Step inside to see rock art, created using an ancient pigmenting technique. Rock Art sites are very rare in the southwest of WA, and Mulka’s Cave is both a Protected Area and is listed on the Register of the National Estate.


Keeping the kids and pets happy is part and parcel of a successful road trip. Everyone on board will be happy to learn that the Pathways to Wave Rock features a few playgrounds—perfect for burning through pent-up energy.

Pair a visit to the Newdegate Skate Park with a visit to the nearby CBH Silo Art – part of the PUBLIC Silo Trail.

Skaters and cyclists will love the Kulin Pump Track and skate park. With the Kulin Discovery Zone nearby, it’s a great spot for the whole family to stretch their legs.

The Corrigin Adventure Playground is the perfect addition to one of the quirkiest stops on the Pathways to Wave Rock: the Corrigin Dog Cemetery. The final resting place for over 200 pups, it’s a lovely way to learn stories about beloved family pets.
