It is quite hike to the blow holes but worth the effort especially if if is a very windy day. There is a sign at the beginning of the path which I suggest you read before you head off which will give you some indication of they are blowing. It is quite a strenuous walk coming back up. It sure... More

We did not go to the very end as it was not blowing.We were informed by little children who were not happy on their return. Enjoyed the views and the wind from the top of the steps.

Nothing compares to the deep thundering raw and the anticipation of the gust of wind as a big breaker rolls in

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.

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
