While you can walk from Wave Rock, I am glad we drove. Honestly, not much to see but a cave, that sort of looks like a hippo.

Visited with adventurous children, can be viewed from car park so ok for the less able. Suits those prepared to scramble for a better look.

It really appears to be a Hippo's mouth wide & yawning, very easy to see & imagine. Formed over generations by weathering & moisture getting into the rock and hot & cold temperature changes ! Easily reached by car or on a pleasant short walk...More

a part of the wave rock tour. Interesting, different members saw a different item. It was a brain teaser for the group.

The Hippo Yawn, really looked like a Hippo Yawn, The rocks made it so that it looked like a Hippo’s Yawn. I took a picture at the inside. It looked like there was a foot inside. Cool! I enjoyed this attraction. Worthwhile to enjoy!

Nice rock formation. Something else to do other than Wave Rock in the area. It's a nice walk from Wave Rock.

The description is accurate and as part of the Wave Rock it is a must see. Part of a reasonably short walk. Don’t miss it!

We did this as a quick side trip while visiting Wave Rock. It is very close and easily accessible, less than 50m easy walk from the car park. Not a deep cave to explore, but an unusual shape entrance hence the name.

An interesting & quite fun rock formation within walking distance or short drive from Wave Rock. Adds to the overall experience visiting this region

Walking trail at the Wave Rock area. Excellent trail to the Hippo's Yawn granite "cave" on well marked pathway.
