Lots of beauty along the cost

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.

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
