  • Basically this rock is part of The Wave trail but you either walk or drive ,in the heat drive .The Mouth is just like an open hippo mouth .  more »
  • Literally a few minutes worth of a visit as not much to see other than taking your photo in front of it. Mulkas cave and the humps far more enjoyable as you can hike up them.  more »
  • You only need a quick look at this unless you're hiking the trail route around the park to Wave Rock and other sights.  more »

  • Hippos Yawn is about 1 km from the Wave Rock. There is a walking pass in-between the two places. There is a small car park near the Hippos Yawn, therefore you can also drive to this place. It is worth to see.
  • Wave rock Hippos yawn they at together and mulkas cave 10 kilometres cosebay
  • Easy access and worth a look. And yes it does look like a hippo yawning.
  • Naturally crafted stone... Amazing
  • Great easy walk from Wave Rock or you can drive right to it
