  • The Hippo's Yawn is a very short drive from the Wave Rock carpark. Easily accessed by disabled people. Certainly worth a look.  more »
  • This cave is like a hippopotamus that is opening the mouth, quite strange shape where the upper wall of the cave is a large stone that resembles the shape of the mouth of the hippo, here we take photos

  • Interesting rock it really looks almost like a hippo's mouth. It's only a few minutes of Wave Rock if you decide to take a walk. Definitely worth a visit for a funny picture. Of course you also can go there by car. There's a car park right in front of the Rock.
  • This was a lovely walk and a great surprise at the end, this rock surely looks just as its name described 👌
