Hippo's Yawn is a rock formation located nearby Wave Rock. This rock formation can be accessed by a roughly 20-30 minute walk from the base of wave rock. It's an easy, grade 1, trail that loops back to the Wave Rock carpark. Just be careful when it rains because it is an unpaved trail. However, during spring, there will be many beautiful wildflowers growing.

The Hippo's Yawn is a large gaping rock formation that reaches 13 metres tall and resembles a hippo yawning. It was thought to be originally a part of a larger outcrop. The attraction is equipped with a bench and information plaque.
