Definitely put the Blow Holes on your bucket list amazing watching them go off. Wear good footwear as to get closer the rocks are very uneven and can be slippery but well worth getting up closer.

Some of the better blowholes we have seen! Rather than just one there are at least 4 some coming directly from the rock ledge rather than from inside a “tube” of rock. Desolate rugged coastline

Also known as the Quobba Blowholes, this attraction is well worth the detour from the main road if you are travelling between Carnarvon and Shark Bay. We went a few hours before high tide and found the blowholes to be very active with the big...More

Well worth the drive from Carnarvon to visit the spectacular Blowholes and amazing coastline. Make sure you take snorkeling gear to enjoy a beautiful swim in the lagoon about 1 km south of the blowholes.

Definitely worth the trip out to the blow holes. Waited until the tide was high and the ocean was pumping. That is when you go.
