I was lucky enough to experience the blow holes because the winds and tides were right. It is about a 15 minute walk down the blowholes and a 20 minute climb up the stairs back. It was worth it.

Even if you don't see any whales or whitewash from the blow holes it is a lovely walk down from the car park and to another beach nearby.

Although the blow holes were not spraying up, we had a great walk and we where fortunate enough to see a few whales in the bay. Perfect timing!

It's a long walk downhill so if you meet someone coming back it pays to ask them whether the blow holes are actually blowing. They weren't on the day we went so we only walked about half way. The views were great though and we...More

800m walk, downhill, and after approx. 20 minutes we arrived at the blowholes. The wind was strong and in the right direction as per the signage. Over a period of 15 minutes, we watched for eruptions of spray from the blowholes. We probably sighted just...More
