A lovely walk that let's you see some of the beautiful rugged coastline. While it is more of a 'blow-crack' rather than a blow hole, it does give you the opportunity to see it up close. But like all things in nature, it depends on...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.

The day of our visit was calm so the blow holes were quiet. The walk to the holes was excellent and the views magnificent.

When we went, the surge was not strong enough to force the water up and put. However, it was still a fun experience. It's a good trek down to the holes. Even if it doesn't blow, it is still exciting to sit there and listen...More
