It's difficult to decide whether the blow holes were meant to be seen or just heard. I didn't see... read more

You need to be reasonably fit to descend down the walkway and steps and then out on to the rocks to see the gaps in the rocks where the air blows up, be patient and dont get too close. A long climb backup to the...More

It's difficult to decide whether the blow holes were meant to be seen or just heard. I didn't see any holes as it's tricky to gauge the safety of venturing further out from the pole with the floater and warning sign, not able to see...More

So the reality is that it’s a long walk to see something that may or may not be happening that day. 800 metre walk that is all up hill coming back with significant inclines.

We enjoyed the walk down to and then back up from the Blowholes. We wandered down near a beach area, and were happy to simply take in the beautiful scenery. We could feel and hear the waves hitting under the blowholes, but they weren't strong...More
