“Hippo's Yawn”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 29, 2013

A short walk from Wave Rock. Pretty cool place to visit if you are at Wave Rock. You can do a nice walk that gets both the formations and even a great view from the top of the rock.

“A little bit of imagination needed ....”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2012

You have to use your imagination here but if you do, then you really can see the hippo yawn ... and if you stand inside, you can also see his teeth. Stunning rock formations and a beaut walk around the area, especialy with the trees and shrubs bursting out for Spring.

“History is wonderful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2012

We heard two wonderful stories to history of the Hippo's Yawn and whichever you choose to believe they are both equal in the telling.
Thank you

“Hippo Yawn.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2012

Hippo Yawn, part of Wave Rock attractions. 1.25 walk from the Caravan Park or you can drive which takes 5 minutes from the caravan park. Interesting, like small cave, open at the other end, which you can climb thru onto the top of Wave Rock. Interesting, worth a look.

“Why not?”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 22, 2012

Close to Wave Rock, so worth a visit, a fine example of a "trefino" ?, or Italian for window according to the geologists. Several smaller examples exist on the top of wave rock.
