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

It you are a bit physically challenged don't attempt the walk as the return walk up the hill and 80 steps is testing. On our day the crack in the rocks alias blowhole was only venting a rush of air with a bit of steam....More

The walk from the car cark to the actual blow holes is an effort for the unfit and mobility challenged. The unsealed path is an adventure in it's self as the path rolls up and down, with beautiful wildflowers lining much of the way. Once...More

We had a lot of fun at the blow holes! we loved the thrill of the burst of wind blowing at us. Bit dangerous as need to keep eye on children that they dont fall in! Or fall on the rocky terrain.

Didn't realise just how far it was to walk (and it was raining) and how much of it was uphill on the way back to the car park - a sign at the beginning say how long it would take would be a great improvement....More

My husband and I visited the blow holes after going to The Gap so we expected something equally as impressive. We were sadly disappointed. The walk to the blow holes was quite some distance and involved walking down quite a lengthy set of steps that...More

The blow holes is a short drive from the Gap and Natural Bridge. When we were there, the whole place was deserted and we were the only car at the carpark. To reach the Blow Holes, it is quite a long walk with stairs right...More

A lovely walk that let's you see some of the beautiful rugged coastline. While it is more of a 'blow-crack' rather than a blow hole, it does give you the opportunity to see it up close. But like all things in nature, it depends on...More
