Rugged granite coastline near Albany

Just a short drive from down town Albany, set in a National Park, many attractions and rock formations nearby. Best to visit this area late afternoon and take in sunset too.

Barely a whisper was heard from the blow holes when we visited. A long walk to almost nothingness. A prominent sign other than one telling people to turn back if they have a dog should be displayed to let people know what to expect under different weather circumstances, and to say how long the walk is to the blow holes....

It was a good walk down to the blow holes with lots of fresh air. The day we where the it did not really blow as the waves where not that big.

Do read the sign at the entrance of the walkway (I have uploaded a picture). The walk is scenic and yes there are a number of stairs and in places it is a little steep. You need to keep walking over/around/along the granite ledge and you will see a square sign above the 'crack' housing the blowhole. On the day... More

After a 30 minute walk to the blow holes down a very steep walk/stairs we arrived at a place where many others were already standing. We hear the sound of the water being forced through the holes but WE COULD NOT SEE THEM!!! There is a sign indicating the criter that should be met in order to SEE the blow... More

Blow hole was a wonderful experience we had with friends. The voice of the beautiful waves echoing from the blow hole was worth it...... again its totally scenic but the only issue we had was the walk from the car to the blow hole was tiring.....

Well worth the short walk from the car park. Spectacular when the seas are rough. Great for action photos. Tourists may be tempted to try it for fishing, but my advice is DON'T. Many lives have been lost in this spot over the years. Fool-hardy folk think that drowning can't happen to them. DON'T become another victim.

Be aware that the blowholes are a reasonable walk from the car park, also the journey is good on the way there with the assistance of gravity. The walk back up hill is a little longer and not as easy as the outward journey. That said the scenery is beautiful and the blow holes amusing if you watch others having... More

After one hell of a long walk/decent you come to the blowhole.. It's was happening and the noise is loud and if not paying attention will give you a fright... Slightly concerned that there is no railing so would never take my kids on that note.. One long, steep walk back.. Worth a visit though.
