“There she blows”
Reviewed October 3, 2013

It was interesting visiting the site. The blow holes wasn't the best the day we visited but we were still able to see the water going through the holes. Worth a visit.

“Disappointing”
Reviewed September 26, 2013

I know that there was a sign at the beginning of the long walk down telling us how to determine if it was worth our time. Even then, it was a gamble. We were unlucky and there were no water to see shooting up.

From the car park to the blow holes, the wind was extremely strong. I had a hard time walking around so do be careful.

It was quite difficult to see the blow holes as they're cracks in the ground for the water to shoot up from. The area where the cracks are also quite steep so it's quite dangerous since you don't know where the water is going to shoot out from (if it does) and where the "cliff" ends.

“Little bit scary”
Reviewed September 22, 2013

We went to the blow holes on a very windy day. It was amazing seeing the water and wind shooting up. It made quite a loud noise. Definitely a lot of photo opportunities on the rocks as well. It's easy to sit down there and spend a while just watching the water and relaxing. I would say that going in winter is better then summer!

“It's Alriight”
Reviewed July 15, 2013

Long walk down to see some holes blowing... and also Eclipse Island opposite. Do it just once is ok. Climbing back up is tiring!

“Gushing geisers Batman!”
Reviewed June 24, 2013

Take your camera and a warm jacket, maybe a drink, you could be a while. It's the sort of place you just like to linger, despite the nasty weather. It is really beautiful and very dynamic. If you can't get a great photo yourself, grab a postcard of it before you leave town.
