Others bemoan the fact the blowholes aren’t blowing but the walk is majestic and the noise and wind from the holes still make this a great place to view. Gorgeous greenery and a lovely spotted lizard made it perfect. 78 Steps and slope are not...More

It would be best if this attraction was given some more detail at the signpost after we had parked our car as the number of steps are indicated but not the distance by the track. The blowholes were not functioning as blowholes the day we...More

This is a long walk down some stairs and some paths with rocks. When we visited it was quite windy and cold and the waves were crashing in over the rocks. when we got to the blowholes they were blowing which was good but we...More

This is one hell of a walk once you get out of your car, and if the blow-holes aren't blowing then it is a colossal waster of time. So make sure to talk to everyone coming up as you are going down - because the...More

Good walk down stairs and paths to the blowhole with sparse rock outcrops and low vegetation. Quite spectacular views with the blue ocean against the red rock. The blowhole was a little disappointing but the the scenery made up for it along with the excitement...More

Short downhill walk from the carpark across a narrow dirt track partly wind-protected, with a couple of small steps - then across massive slab-like rock faces - not for toddlers or those unsure of their footing due to high winds and rocks, definitely not wheelchair...More

The coastal scenery at the Blowhole is spectacular. We were there on a sunny fine day and the scene was picturesque. Note that there is an uphill walk to return requiring a moderate degree of fitness.

It is an impressive place. Just air blow out and large sound. But it requires a long long way to walk. There is no grantee you can see or hear it. Like us, we wait for around 30 mins just one blow, lucky us.

We went on a windy and overcast day, supposedly when the blowholes are supposed to be at their best. The wind and swells must have been going in the wrong direction though as the holes weren't blowing that day. We could still hear the water...More
