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.

When visiting Blowholes take into consideration the size of the swell as this obviously has a direct impact of their performance. In autumn/winter there can be 5m+ swells at times, if you want to see them perform that would be the time to go. If they aren't firing keep walking around the corner (about 100m) and you will come across... More

It is a matter of luck to have the chance of see the blow holes in action. We were there early in the morning but did not have luck. You have to be careful of not wandering beyond the holes since the rocks can get slippery.

This coastline is spectacular wherever you go - and this spot is no exception. I had a little excitement here - as I was walking down the path, I was looking at the settings on my camera when, out of the corner of my eye, I spotted a long dark brown object on the path... The snake gave me a... More

The Blowholes are situated within Torndirrup National Park which also include, the Gap and Natural Bridge. It is a bit of a walk down to the blowholes from the parking area, but do not bother going there if the weather is fine and the sea is fairly calm as the blowholes, will not be blowing. There is no entry fee... More

We did many of the scenic attractions in the Torndirrup National Park and intended to see the blowholes. However when we read that you had to descend a steep 74 step stairway and the chances were that there wouldn't be much happening - not to mention having to climb back up the stairway, we decided to give it a miss....

It is a 900 meter walk down hill to the holes and a fairly steep walk back up again. When we were there the holes only produced a hissing sound and no spray, even though the sea was quite rough. The rugged scenery compensated for the disappointment.
