More of splash than a boom

Well most of the blows were more like the splash I make when I fall in the pool. Not really what I'd call a blow hole and I've seen a few! The surounds were good and access was... read more

Well most of the blows were more like the splash I make when I fall in the pool. Not really what I'd call a blow hole and I've seen a few! The surounds were good and access was easy the water front at Bicheno is lovely.

Nice views and quite amazing, easy to find and parking was good. Access was good and we had children that could walk with us, unlike some other blowholes

We visit Bicheno a couple of times every year. Blowhole can be thoroughly stunning but needs right tides or wild weather. Totally disappointing when sea is calm. Best viewed from nearby rocks but beware of rogue waves.

Bicheno is a pretty boring place, and in our experience this blow hole did not add much to the experience, but perhaps the swell was simply not big enough when we were there. It's a nice spot to take in the view, but in our humble opinion, not worth going much out of your way for.

We were in Bicheno for the day so had the blowhole on our list of things to do. Walking around the rocks and looking out towards the sea is lovely, but on the day we went the blowhole wasn't really managing anything more than a small sputter. There also isn't very good signage, so you have to keep a good... More

Apparently Bicheno is famous for the Blowhole. A windy day with rough seas is the best time to view it. Very easy walk from the carpark atop some very large boulders. Watch out for the little crabs skittering along the rock cracks. It's really peaceful early in the morning, listening to the waves crashing and the sun coming up.

It is not the most dramatic blow hole in Australia - but it is good within its rock shore setting. Well worth a visit

This was a great little surprise while staying in Bicheno. My 5 year old thought it was fantastic and we liked that you could park and walk to it easily in 2 minutes. After hiking up to Wine Glass Bay an easy to access location tht made my daughter happy was a win,
