This is a place where the wilder the weather the better the show. The ideal time is when the see is very rough and at high tide as this is when the blow holes make the biggest spouts. Take careful note of the safety signs...More

it is a bit of a walk from the car park, but well worthwhile if you go on a windy day, like we did. We had the added bonus of sitting there for half an hour watching a couple of whales frolicking just off the...More

A good walk with downhill and back up including steps to the rock formations. Tremendous views, we could hear the blowholes but there just wasn't enough swell for them to be visible.

It you are a bit physically challenged don't attempt the walk as the return walk up the hill and 80 steps is testing. On our day the crack in the rocks alias blowhole was only venting a rush of air with a bit of steam....More

The walk from the car cark to the actual blow holes is an effort for the unfit and mobility challenged. The unsealed path is an adventure in it's self as the path rolls up and down, with beautiful wildflowers lining much of the way. Once...More

We had a lot of fun at the blow holes! we loved the thrill of the burst of wind blowing at us. Bit dangerous as need to keep eye on children that they dont fall in! Or fall on the rocky terrain.
