“fun and not far from the main Wave Rock”
Reviewed 2 June 2013

It really does look like a hippo yawning, and there is an easy walk back to the main campground afterward

“Hippos Yawn”
Reviewed 22 May 2013

I love rock formation s and the Hippos Yawn did not disappoint! It's only a short walk from Wave Rock and has its own car park. If you walk further around you can climb up on the eastern? side of Wave rock and view the back end of this very large rock formation plus you will see some amazing landscape views of our wonderful country. There also appears to be a gorge in the rock which at times must have waterfalls pouring dine as this is evident in marking s at the top if ghee rock.

“Amazing”
Reviewed 15 March 2013

Hippo's Yawn, as the name says, it's a big rock formation that looks like a huge hippopotamus yawning. Very cool for photography. It's free to park there, and it's a short walk to the Wave rock.
