The signage was contradictory but we decided to take the long walk downhill to the blowholes site. Visitors returning uphill had varying descriptions and we carried on. A few stops along the route for photos and to admire the rugged scenery surrounding. Unfortunately for us,...More

Not much spray as the surf was not big enough but it was noisy with puffs that sounded like what a dragon blowing fire would. A medium distance and effort walk from the carpark - some steps etc. You can get right up close to...More

Unfortunately, when we were there the waves weren't surging enough to get a really big effect through the blowholes, but it didn't matter. Walking down and then along the rocks was worth it, with beautiful views everywhere. A good stop on the way to/from The...More

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

For the full effect pick your day as you need a windy, choppy sea. I found the Albany locals great in helping letting you know if it's worth the drive, but in my opinion it is still worth the effort just for the views, and...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.

I was looking forward to seeing the blow holes, but was a bit disappointed. It was a long walk, which we have enjoyed, but we didn't see anything at the blow holes sign. We waited for quite a while, but still didn't see anything. You...More

The walk to the blowholes area is ok; lots of steps but manageable; but the blowholes themselves aren’t obvious, and with all the signs warning us not to go too close to the edge, we weren’t willing to go exploring to find them! We could...More
