Lovely part of the coast. My son had a great time flying his kite as it was very windy. Lots of great pictures of beautiful area for a walk and discovery.

We visited the blowhole late in the afternoon following a day out driving around. It really demonstrates the power of the ocean and the relentless continuing pounding of the waves. Makes you wonder how all these things happen.

Thought this a must do and although scenery was pretty the blowhole did nothing. Guess you have to time it right.

Only go if you have lots free time, the height of a splash is usually only up to 10ft. It's probably only worth it if you're going to coles bay. You can head to melshell oysters if you're an oyster fan.

Well worth coming to see if you are in Bicheno. As the area is unfenced and has minimal signage, supervision of young children is most important. Common sense is required when there as unexpected waves could easily make someone lose their footing. Good place but...More

This is Nature. And should be treated accordingly! It does work most day and it can spectacular when it’s rough.

It's a small spot not a place must visit. If you have free time, you can come by! I prefer the beach near by to chill out. Too many tourists in this place

Easy access for everyone and it was blowin everyday even when the surf looked flat. Everyone was loving it but some people got wet getting too close and freak waves coming through. Watch your kids and yourselves and enjoy

I wouldn't say the blowhole was utterly impressive, but the area is really beautiful and it is worth taking a walk. The sea was calm on the day we visited, and it might be more impressive when the sea is rough.

A very easy walk across rocks took us to the blowhole. Even with a calm sea we were entertained with spouts of sea water gushing out of the blowhole at regular short intervals. Great fun to observe and plenty of photo opportunities.

No, sorry. They're a good few hours apart. Bicheno is up the east coast and Tasman Arch is on the peninsula in the other direction, toward Port Arthur.
