Got some really great photos in the late afternoon, got up very close. A range of sprays, just have to be patient to see the big ones. Spent a good 45 mins here.

Certainly a bit of fun when you are on your way to the penguin tour. Quiet little town not much else to do - good for kids.

This was exciting to see in action. You can get really close and it is safe if your sensible. With patience you can snap a great photo

This blowhole is a beauty with safe flat rocks around it and a fantastic backdrop. Unfortunately we had calm seas for our 4 days in Bicheno and it only managed a few "spouts" exceeding 5 metres. It would be fabulous in a serious swell !!

Walked along the coastal path on the recommendation of our hotel owner, and the sights were amazing, especially during sunset! We had fun taking photographs of the blowhole and waiting for the gust of water! Worth the trip!

watching nature at work was fascinating. Just don't go too close though as you can get very wet! Be aware of the dangers of slippery rocks.

What a delightful sight when the spray comes up through the blowhole. We were amazed at how high the spray got, we got some awesome photos.

Close to town with easy access and free. Great view of stone coast. Feel excited when sea water splash from the ground like fountain.

Bicheno blowhole is very close to the town & its free. It's a spectacular sight when the waves are big. It's worth a quick stopover if you are at Bicheno. I was thrilled to see the highest spray went up to around 4m in the air.
