We went there twice, once in the morning and once in the evening. In the morning, the waves were bigger and the blowhole was bigger. In the evening, the blowhole was much smaller. It depends on what time you go there. It is an exciting experience to see water gushing out of the blowhole.

I've seen a few blowholes and still, I waited with anticipation for the next "big one"! It's fascinating to see the waves pressure pushes the seawater up. Just wait for the BIG ONE... wait for it...

The Blowhole is interesting but occupies interest for about 20 minutes. Its an interesting geological phenomenon but .. c'mon how long can stare at the majesty of water crashing into a nature-formed structure. Why this gets an Excellent review though is the surroundings make for a good place to picnic, just sit and stare and get hypnotised by nature. Lots... More

If you are in Bicheno, this is FUN FUN FUN and potentially dangerous too if you are not careful! You can get really up close and personal with the blow hole which is nature and nature is as nature does. So best be careful, otherwise, it's fun, nice and one of the things to see if in Bicheno.

This is really a must to visit when in Bicheno. Experience the power of Mother Nature and feel the waves pounding on the rocks. Be wary of tide and wind if you trying to get close to the blow hole as the waves may go pounding over the top of the rocks and there is a danger of it dragging... More

Safe for families and super cool to watch. We saw crabs and lots of other mini sea life as we explored the rocks and rock pools.

Congratulation to Shire and Dept of Parks. The Blow hole is easy to access and everyone's needs have been catered for. Even at low tide with minimal swell it was worth a look and to see other views and kelp around the rocks was great. Thank you a good place to visit.

A quick easy experience with ample free parking, the blow hole is situated a 3 minute walk from the carpark. The area is suitable for some good photos with the eastern coast orange coloured lichen surrounding the rocks. I would suggest that on a choppy day the blowhole would be more impressive.

this was not particularly spectacular on our relatively calm day, but kids still loved clambering over all the rocks. If you like walking, there is a great walk that takes you on a loop around the town, to a lookout, the blowhole and the coastline. Ask at the tourist info, but it is pretty well marked.

We recently stopped here on way down the East coast. Although the day was average and the sea was pretty rough the blow hole was not really going off. I guess this is something the cannot be controlled and it is just luck of the draw. If you are going this way I would stop for a visit but I... More
