  • An amazing natural structure which was very welcome to shelter under on the scorching hot day we were there. 
  • This is just a short walk from Wave Rock. There is a nice walking track through sparse bush, with some wild flowers. The rock formation is so aptly named as it looks just like a hippo. 
  • It really does look like a Hippo yawning. Very impressive and a lovely, easy walk to see the cave. The site is easily accessed by people of all fitness levels.
