It's water coming out of a hole in a rock. But the Bicheno coast is beautiful. And there are little water creatures in the rockpools.

The blowhole is impressive and worth visiting. Easy to reach with parking available and then just a short walk to the rocks and water.

Clearly you have to be at the Blowhole when the tide is right otherwise there would be very little water thrust up through the hole.

If you haven't seen one of these before, it is an interesting natural phenomenon with a larger water spout approx every 7th wave - in line with the ocean swell.

No, sorry. They're a good few hours apart. Bicheno is up the east coast and Tasman Arch is on the peninsula in the other direction, toward Port Arthur.
