  • A short 15 minutes walk from Wave Rock on good walking paths. Good photographic spots, bring selfie stick if you go solo like me. The rock is exactly like the picture  more »

  • You can either drive or walk. You would need to take the trail from Wave Rock if you choose the latter. The walk trail is amazing and you see some amazing fauna and flora. Hippo Yawns is surprisingly cool, which is well received after a walk.
  • Best bit of this was seeing somebody drop their iPad trying to take a selfie...
  • Although it fame has been over shadowed by the adjacent Wave rock, personal I love this more than wave rock.
  • Very cool rock. Did on an easy cycle around the three attractions at wave rock.
  • great place to visit
