I didn't know what to expect when I went there. It is definitely a little wonder of nature this sound that comes out of the rock but that's it. The other spots in the park where better.

Loved the blowholes! We went on a relatively quiet day and still saw some action! Pick a stormy day and it would be fantastic! Prepare to walk the hill is steep! 😂

A to do visit. Keep to the pathways and be sensible. View is great. Be prepared to walk so wear comfortable walking shoes

Even though it is an 800 metre walk it is well worth it. The sight is not spectacular but the sound is!! There are great views all around the area as well. Apparently there are often whales but we were unlucky today.

Check before you go, to make sure that the Blowholes will be blowing, as there are a lot of steps (76) to get to them. You see nothing other than the wonderful coastline, if the sea is too calm!

Worth a stop off but remember you need a bit of ocean swell for them to be operating to maximum effect A sound shoe rather than a visual display

This is fabulous spot to visit, but be prepared for a workout!! The noise from the Blowhole is amazing and the pressure when it blows...... Beautiful spot... a must go see.

800 metres and 78 steps .. easy you might say, but the sign doesn't tell you it's all down hill to the blowholes. Which means it's all uphill back to the car park . Having said that, it was definitely worth it - though not...More
