If you are at Wave Rock, see the hippo. It's a large formation that looks like a hippo's open mouth (obviously).

This rocki/cave Is really well named and does look like a hippo yawning. Worthwhile walking that bit further on from Wave Rock to see this rock/cave. Follow the signs, kids would love it.

Staying in the caravan park directly behind made it easy to do The Wave one day then take my time to stroll along to the hippo's yawn the next day when the legs had recovered. Just no need to be in such a rush

If you are visiting Wave Rock close by, Hippo's Yawn is on one of the walking trails and certainly worth visiting.

The walk trail from Wave Rock to Hippo Yawn is pleasant and enjoyable. Look over the rock for the camouflaged lizards, look in the trees for the huge Orb Weaver spiders and have a great nature experience. Take water for your walk.

a big hippo yawning and that's exactly what it looks like, loved it. A bit of a walk to get down to it, but well worth it.

Only stopped here quickly but it does look like a hippo yawning. Worth the visit as it is close by before retiring to the place for lunch.

Just a short walk on from Wave Rock is Hippos Yawn. It is worth the walk and is very cool inside the hippos mouth. Take water with you when you do this walk as it is hot and there is not water available along the track
