The Blow is situated south of the Surf Life Saving Club but is accessed via a bush track from a carpark off Cooloola Drive. There are 2 sets of steps to go up before you reach the Blow. Viewing platform gives great view of water over the Blow.

We didnt go sand boarding so we just made a few photos and left. We really didnt find it special, the coloured sands at Fraser Island are much nicer compared to this.

We got there about 9am after the 600m walk through the bush. We were the second set of foot prints on the sand for the day. Lovely place to sit for a while and watch the world pass by or even some whales. Definately a good work out up the soft sandy hills. Sunscreen up and take some water.

Spectacular place to see the sunset - park at the water tower and it is about a 600m walk through the national park. You will be greeted with a huge expanse of sand with views to the ocean on one side and lakes to the other. Pack some cheese and wine and enjoy! Bring a towel to sit on if... More

What a view! Lots of whales as well! Very nice views and a lot of sand. Walk all the way to the edge and spans at least an hour sitting down to feel the reality the place has to give! Bring your binocular... or a 200mm lens!

This is a must-do if you're in the area!!! The walk through the bush is a mystery as you're not sure where you'll end up! Once you're out on the blow, you will have your breath taken away! It is my favourite place in this beautiful area! The scenery is astounding! Hot tip:- take lots of water and visit in... More

A nice stroll through the bush to the Sand Blow. It is a energetic walk over the sand dunes to spectacular views. Well worth going to see.
