Great location and worth a look if you are in the area. Tame when I saw this but have heard it can be spectacular if waves and weather are right. Need to be careful as rocks can be slippery and waves unpredictable.

A little cafe suggested to go to the blowhole to watch the Penguins. Loved the blowhole, and the fairy Penguins did not disappoint. Must be careful driving out as they are even out on the road!

I read an article that says there are 3 Bs to check out in Bicheno. The Blue Edge Bakery, the Butcher and The Blowhole. I have been to the bakery which was amazing. I did not go to the butcher cos I didn't cook at all when I was there on holiday. On my last day in Bicheno, I went... More

We visited the blowhole one morning with calm seas and low tide and did not expect it to be going. But we were surprised that it was very active. We were looking around and notice a large Echidna sitting on a rock admiring the action as well. Wonderful experience.

Not the best day for a big blow but it was still worth going. The lovely coastal scenery adds to the experience.

The blowhole is a great natural attraction. Sadly the day we visited the sea was fairly calm so not a lot of action but it is easy to find and to access and would be spectacular with some wilder weather

Not that impressive small spurt of water. However it happened regularly. Easy to access from car park.

What a beautiful spot! We stopped here fairly early morning and it was very cold with high wind chill. However it was worth it. It was amazing. The blow hole is amazing but so are the rocks around the beach. Very scenic and worth stopping to see.

If you want to see the full furore of the sea and water jetting out from the blowhole, you need to be there when the full tide reaches the shore. A simple search on the internet of the time of tidal changes at bicheno should save your bacon. The area is still worth visiting when the sea is "calmer". There... More
