We didnt go all the way to the blowholes as we asked a few people on their way back if they were doing anything and apparently the tides were not strong enough and there was little water action. Despite the winds howling and the sea...More

Sadly this is not really worth the walk unless you like more ocean views... the hole does not do much other than make a 'blowing' noise. Too dangerous for young children.

The blow holes were not spraying much when we visited but the sound was something else. Like a major bang each time the waves hit. They would be something else indeed in high winds, but you probably wouldn't want to be on those slippery rocks...More

Great if you like rock climbing. Beautiful views of the ocean and rocks. Wind was in the wrong direction to see the water blow through blowholes but still worth a look. Beautiful

Steep walk back up but not too bad. Weren't blowing when we went; and it was actually really windy!! It sounded good, but no water spraying out.

This place has a quite bit of walk, the blow holes are more like a crack in the rocks . Not recommended to cross over the holes. The waves are good giveaway as to when the next blow will be heard.

The Blow Holes managed to get a 'Whoah!!!!!' out of me. We stood beside them and could hear the waves begin to make a noise, then suddenly it was a thunderous roar with an incredibly strong wind rushing out of the holes that nearly blew...More

this is an amazing place to visit, it is a good walk and coming back it is mostly uphill so be prepared, but when you get to the blowhole it is pretty spectacular, from watching the waves coming into the blowhole and then watching the...More

If you have seen some good blow holes before then this one won't be that great. We did see it blowing so that was a plus and the walk is lovely.

Others bemoan the fact the blowholes aren’t blowing but the walk is majestic and the noise and wind from the holes still make this a great place to view. Gorgeous greenery and a lovely spotted lizard made it perfect. 78 Steps and slope are not...More
