This is very quirky and worth visiting as it is only a short walk from Wave Rock and it is very quirky. It actually does look like a hippo yawning and a good place to take photo's. Admittedly it is only a rock, but fun.

Just a nice walk of less than 1km from Wave Rock, or a short drive from Wave rock carpark is Hippo;s Yawn. The rock formation looks like an open Hippo's mouth and throat. you can stand inside the formation. Worth a visit while at Wave Rock. Nice to do the circle route from Wave Rock to Hippo's Yawn and back. An easy walk as done with elderly parents with a walking stick. doing the walk to both sites you would spend over an hour, if driving between sites and not exploring on foot you could have a shorter visit.

You can either walk to/from Wave Rock, but we took the drive option (2 minutes). You don't need to spend much time here, it's really just a photo opportunity and move on (for most of us). Easy access with a normal car, no 4WD required.

If you are going to Wave Rock anyway, make the most of it and walk to Hippo's Yawn. It is a flat and easy walk in sneakers. Hiking boots with good tread better for climbing around the rocks.

No harm visiting the place if you are around the area. We had a short walk from Wave Rock to here (less than 10 mins).

For those trying to avoid parking fees at Wave Rock, U can always park here, than walk to Wave Rock :) The car park is just right in front of the Hippo's Yawn. Its free if not mistaken :)

The Hippo's Yawn is a very short drive from the Wave Rock carpark. Easily accessed by disabled people. Certainly worth a look.

Whist visiting Wave Rock its worth the short, flat bush walk to Hippo's Yawn. A very interesting rock formation.

I would add this into a walk leaving your car near the caravan park and doing a trail round Wave Rock

I walked from the Wave Rock carpark to see the Hippo. When I arrived I realised you could drive straight there. My wife wasn't up to the walk, so we then drove over and she had a look as well. It is really well named and certainly worth a look.
