The description is accurate and as part of the Wave Rock it is a must see. Part of a reasonably short walk. Don’t miss it!

We did this as a quick side trip while visiting Wave Rock. It is very close and easily accessible, less than 50m easy walk from the car park. Not a deep cave to explore, but an unusual shape entrance hence the name.

An interesting & quite fun rock formation within walking distance or short drive from Wave Rock. Adds to the overall experience visiting this region

Walking trail at the Wave Rock area. Excellent trail to the Hippo's Yawn granite "cave" on well marked pathway.

A really enjoyable short walk of approx. 30 minutes. I mainly enjoyed that I met not more than one couple during the whole hike here.

If you’re visiting wave Rock you may as well walk the 30 minute loop to see Hippos Yawn. A very interesting part of Wave Rock.

If you visit wave rock, walk approx. 1 km to see it. Maybe see it before wave rock as it is looks less spectacular after seeing wave rock.

Nothing spectacular but you certainly can tell it is a big hippo yawn! If you are visiting wave rock, it maybe worthwhile to swing by here.

If your going to do the South West of WA and Waverock, don't miss hippo's yawn, it's a short walk from wave rock, grab a snap, and see if you can find any little orchids on your way there
