A lovely rocky outcrop. Unfortunately Blow Holes weren't blowing when we visited, not enough wind very humid day. The walk down is quite pleasant but if not overly fit be prepared for a bit of a struggle on way back obviously all uphill. Steps for...More

Down the road, the access to the Gap and Natural Bridge is great. At the Blow Holes there's a nice path (warning: it is a bit step coming back) and a small sign saying the holes are 33m away and don't go to close to...More

This was the second set of blowholes we had visited in WA (other ones in Carnarvon). It’s a beautiful walk out to see the blowholes, but have footwear with good traction and the stars must align for you to see the blowholes in action. We...More

A long walk and big climb back up BUT the scenery is worth it. There was no "blowing" on the day we visited BUT the serenity and beauty of the location was still worth the climb! Recommended!

Yet another free attraction to visit, lovely down hill walk, good distance from carpark so bring your walking shoes, unfortunately it isn't always blowing, so its the luck of the draw

I would definitely ask tourists returning from the blowhole 'Is it worth the walk'? and 'are they blowing today'? There is no guarantee they will be blowing as they rely on certain conditions which are explained at the beginning of the walk. There is also...More

Point of interest on the road from Albany to the whaling station. Pathway is a reasonable descent and makes for a fairly steep walk back to the car. Nothing too horrendous but probably not for the infirm and wear shoes rather than thongs. The sound...More
