Hippo's Yawn Reviews
The Hippo's Yawn is a very short drive from the Wave Rock carpark. Easily accessed by disabled people. Certainly worth a look. more »
Gua ini seperti kuda nil yang sedang membuka mulut, cukup aneh bentuknya dimana dinding atas gua merupakan batu besar yang menyerupai bentuk mulut kuda nil, disini kami berfoto foto 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 👌
