Fun to scramble of the rock ledges and dodge the water sprays.

Easy to park and reach this attraction. In reality it is just a hole in the rock with water blasting through but also strangely compelling. The giant boulder perched on the rock... read more

Easy to park and reach this attraction. In reality it is just a hole in the rock with water blasting through but also strangely compelling. The giant boulder perched on the rock ledge is fascinating as well - how did it get there?

It's a blow hole on a beach just like every blow hole on a beach. Nice walk around the rocks. Nothing spectacular but if it's free and if you have kids you can get a few hours out if it if the weather is good.

This blow hole is within easy access from the car park and makes for great photography. Like all accessible blowholes a safe distance is recommended taking note of the wind direction to avoid getting soaked. Very impressive on a large swell day. I'm very happy to recommend this site to travellers.

Best viewed at high tide for greatest effect. We were here at a great time and she put on a good show for us.

These things are best viewed in extreme weather conditions. We were there on low tide and a calm day. I am sure that there are many people who have had a more spectacular experience. It is easy to get to and well worth the visit. Check it out if you have time.

This is a great place to visit. Great for photos with fantastic scenery. Don't just stop at the blowhole, follow the path around the headland. Lots of great places for photos regardless of weather.

We arrived there on a very calm day so it's really hard to expect a Blowhole to be at its best when its a flat ocean & calm day. There are some ok rock formations in the area which make for some special photos with the right conditions. Go there on a windy day with the sea running & a... More
