Hippo’s Yawn, Hyden

About the Trail

The end point of this easily followed and marked trail is Hippo's Yawn. The shallow cave is about 13 metres tall at its mouth and looks like the name suggests. Although a worthy attraction in itself, the loop walk is particuarly interesting for wildflower enthusiasts.

Take a stroll in late winter or spring and play close attention to ground level. Look carefully and you will spot patches of tiny ground orchids. Some are very hard to spot such as greenhoods, unlike the more showy spider orchids. Then go to the visitors centre and see if you can spot your orchid on the chart. It's a lot of fun and challenging for the kids.
