A blow hole is a hole from which water spurts when the ocean conditions are right. These blow holes are quite impressive, Most people seem to like them, visitors who I've taken there do.

Although there is a little walk to get to them the blowholes are a must-see for anyone visiting Albany.

We went to the blow holes in the morning, we could hear the sound and see the "blows" clearly! Fantastic!! Good for young children too although it's quite windy.

After a walk down steep steps and a little walk over some rocks we were able to veiw 1st hand the raw power of nature. On our way back we were able to clearly see 3-5 whales blowing and playing in the mighty ocean below. Definitely a place to see while in the area.

If you are visiting the gap, then make a stop over to the blow hole. A lot more walking is expected and it is quite steep at times but it's worth it. Came here in the late afternoon when the sun was setting. It became very dark very quickly, but that is to be expected being winter. No blowholes when... More

It's always difficult to judge a blowhole, as it depends on weather conditions whether it's blowing or not. On the day we visited, there was just some noise, but no splash or spray at all, unfortunately. The walk itself was pleasant (not difficult in any way) and the views across the ocean fantastic, especially as there were whales breaching and... More

We were warned the swell might not be large enough for the blow to be working but we went anyway. We were expecting a vertical shaft with water spray,we could certainly hear the sound from the blow hole but all we saw was a mist.

It's quite a hike down to the blowholes with some steep pathway to negotiate including steps. And at the end there is rock to walk over to get near to the actual blowholes. The walk there, though, is lovely just to see the vegetation (although the ocean side was burnt out and had only blackened sticks with some green starting... More

The walk down and up is quite steep but well worth it. On the day we went it was very wild and we could hear the blow holes but only occasionally see them. But regardless of this there is some stunning coastline here that is well worth a look. It was also lovely to see so much regeneration of the... More
