    Relaxing Afternoon
    Really enjoyed a relaxing afternoon watching the blowhole and listening to the waves, so peaceful. Our almost adult teenage boys also enjoyed climbing over the rocks. Good sturdy shoes such as runners are a must for safety if wanting to explore the area. The sea spray is part of the fun!

    Spectacular viewing when the seas are up
    We took some American friends to the blowhole hoping it would be worth the visit. It was indeed; the windier/bigger the swell the more spectacular the blow. You need to be able to hop across large boulders to get close to the hole itself - not an activity for very small children or those who are frail or infirm. It can be slippery where the wash covers the rocks, so care is needed. You might also need to be prepared to get wet! The less adventurous can stand back and admire the blow from a greater distance. An hour we’ll spent.

    That She Blows
    We drove back to the eastern shore, below Waub's Harbour, to checkout the Bicheno Blowhole, whose reputation is underwhelming. No such problems today as the tide was full, the wind from the optimum direction and a decent swell operating. Thar she blew with a small roar and whoosh a column of water rose and then dispersed in the air and left an impressive trail of water running of the smooth rocky surface and back to the sea.

    Iconic Bicheno Blowhole
    Fun place to visit to take photos and avoid getting drenched. Not suitable for wheelchair though because of uneven ground , rocks and sand . Allow an easy 30 min here.

    Worth the visit if in Bicheno
    This is a cool attraction and was working nicely when we were there. You can get 'pretty close' as there are no fences ... but if you get too close and are in the wrong position, you could get wet. A simple yet great spot to visit. The swell was not very big whilst we were there but the blow hole was still working nicely.

    Unique attraction
    Still got some great photos even though it wasn't a very active day for the blowhole. If you're brave enough to venture closer to the actual blowhole make sure you have good shoes to avoid slipping, though you really don't need to go too close for a good view. Plenty of car parking around as well.

Fantastic natural experience! I loved sitting on the rocks and watching the delight on people’s faces as the water rushed through the blowhole.

Great Blowhole and easily accessible. There was even a convenient large rock protecting us from getting wet and providing a great view of the blow hole from side on.

Located quite close to town in Bichino we stumbled across the blow holes. An easy walk from parking area straight out onto the rock where the blow holes are located.
Fascinating to see the power of the sea in action.
You can venture as close as you like or are game to to get some spectacultar photos.
Sometimes you need to wait for the sea to stump up and present you with a water column but its worth the wait

Fantastic spot to take the kids to see one of nature's spectacular shows. The kids were amazed at how close you could get to the blowhole and experience the spray.
Nice to also walk across the amazing red rocks surrounding the area and explore. We really enjoyed this as a family.

Some spectacular views of the blowholes and the colourful rocks. We waited here for the penguins but didn't see any. Worth a visit though.
