Quick walk or short drive. Reminds me of a single small rock on Kangaroo Island at Remarkable Rocks.

nice quiet little area - kids loved being in hippo's mouth and cleaning his teeth with a branch. Good photo opportunity and the rocks around form great shapes too - we seen a turtle

Hippos Yawn is well worth visiting and a popular spot for photos, another amazing sight because of its unexpected large size.

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

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.
