There is no indication of the length of the walk to the blowholes at this site. It took about 20 minutes walking downhill (which means an uphill return walk) to reach the blowholes and we were very disappointed. The only reward for our walk was...More

Short downhill walk from the carpark across a narrow dirt track partly wind-protected, with a couple of small steps - then across massive slab-like rock faces - not for toddlers or those unsure of their footing due to high winds and rocks, definitely not wheelchair...More

The coastal scenery at the Blowhole is spectacular. We were there on a sunny fine day and the scene was picturesque. Note that there is an uphill walk to return requiring a moderate degree of fitness.

It is an impressive place. Just air blow out and large sound. But it requires a long long way to walk. There is no grantee you can see or hear it. Like us, we wait for around 30 mins just one blow, lucky us.

We went on a windy and overcast day, supposedly when the blowholes are supposed to be at their best. The wind and swells must have been going in the wrong direction though as the holes weren't blowing that day. We could still hear the water...More

About 15-20 mins walk from carpark to the blowholes. Cliffs can be pretty steep and wet. Fascinating to view blowholes! Great place for nature explorer.

The holes were not blowing today but we manage to see 2 whales. Scenery is breathtaking so it's worth the walk even if the holes are not blowing. There's a sign showing beware of valuables so better not leave valuables in car. The walk is...More

I was lucky enough to experience the blow holes because the winds and tides were right. It is about a 15 minute walk down the blowholes and a 20 minute climb up the stairs back. It was worth it.

20 mins walk down to the blowholes from the Carpark. Can't really see much of the blow holes as you are not able to get too near it given the heavy water pressure . Not a guarantee to see, but It's fascinating to see the...More
