Pretty disappointing considering after walking for 800m, one only find a hole between the rocks that blew air after waves hit the cliffs below. I have seen better and more interesting blowholes in Victoria state and in South Island, NZ.

Plenty of walking involved and a little rough ground at times. However it is worth the effort just to see the views. The Blow Hole wasn't doing much the day we were there. I think it probably needs a fairly rough sea to 'blow' enough to see the water coming up.

Took a long time to get there, a very long walk, and nothing happened. Waste of time and effort. There should be a better indication of when is best to see them, so you don't waste your time

It's at least a 20minute drive to the blow holes. Unless it's a windy/rainy day don't bother heading there as you won't see any action. There is a 15 minute walk to the site from the car park. It is only suitable for moderately fit people as it's downhill on the way there and uphill on the way back.

There is a nice trail down to the blow holes. A lot of interesting scenery on the way with rocks and plants. It is a very good walkway but quite long and quite a climb back. The day we were there the blow holes were not performing as they apparently do some times

great views but a long steep walk was a struggle for a few older people we went on our trek down and up they need a sign to say not blowing during the summer

Its a pleasant enough walk. Saw a tiger snake on the path once. But don't expect too much from the blowholes unless the swell is really up.

Apart from the rather long long walk to get to the blow holes, it was a nice place to have a look at. Thankfully it was windy enough for the blow holes to actually 'blow'.

Good walk to stretch the legs for average to fit walkers. Some older folk didn't make it all the way down as there are no signs indicating the length or difficulty of the walk. The blowholes weren't going that day, we've seen great natural sea blowholes but elsewhere.

As all nature in this region - the walk down to the blowholes was worth a walk although they were "not working" which happens a lot apparently. So if you are not that fit - maybe check with people coming back as you might be disappointed.
