After we finished our visit at Lace shop, we headed for Wave rock. Our 1st stop was at Hippo's Yawn. Big cave, we were told that the aborigines had used this cave to deliver their babies long time ago. Remarkable! It's a historical place, I believed! You can't miss it if you heading this way...to Wave Rocks - Hyden. Enjoy!... More

Another unusual rock formation just on the Caravan Parks door step. Lovley well worth the 10 min walk along the base of the rock.

Well worth the short trip from Wave Rock, especially if you have children. Our grand kids loved it, walked up into the mouth so the Hippo could eat them.

Hippos yawn on it own is average. It worth a look if your visiting wave rock, and is only a few minutes drive or walk from the wave, but after the wave it isn't as breath taking, though kids will find the similaritys of the rock to the inside of a Hippos mouth fun.

Like us,most visitors you talk to have never heard of hippos yawn but once you see it, I am sure it will stick in our minds for a long time. Well worth the short walk or drive from wave rock to have a look at.

Again a must see but two rocks joined together naturally to look like a Hippos mouth takes some imagination. Good job it is only 2 minutes walk from Wave Rock.

Assuming you are at Wave Rock anyway, this is a 10 minute walk/2 minute drive. Its interesting enough to warrant a look.

About 1km east of Wave Rock is Hippo's Yawn. If you visit Wave Rock, it's worth the effort just to have a look. If you can have a photo in the mouth of the hippo, you can look back on it in years to come and think, why did I bother?

An astonishing rock formation, however, I was a little dispointed and was expecting more from what others had told me
