Incorrect distance[edit]

The infobox and the text claim Hyden is 339 km (211 mi) ESE of Perth, but according to Twidale, C. R. (1968) Origin of Wave Rock, Hyden, referenced at Wave Rock, Wave Rock is only 296 km ESE of Perth. I independently confirmed this on Google Maps. I'm not sure where the number 339 comes from, but it's way off - my measurements show 292 km, which anyone can easily verify so I've put that instead, but a reliable source would be helpful. I checked the other measurements from Kondinin and Merredin and they're correct. Dcoetzee 04:00, 19 July 2012 (UTC)
