It's a lovely walk down to where the blow holes are but a long slog back up , if the waves aren't enough to make them blow then I'd stay at the top , well I will next time

We enjoyed the walk down to and then back up from the Blowholes. We wandered down near a beach area, and were happy to simply take in the beautiful scenery. We could feel and hear the waves hitting under the blowholes, but they weren't strong enough to blow up through the holes. That's ok though, we enjoyed it nonetheless. Note that the walk back up to the carpark is fairly steep.

We didnt go all the way to the blowholes as we asked a few people on their way back if they were doing anything and apparently the tides were not strong enough and there was little water action. Despite the winds howling and the sea looking quite angry there was not really much swell so we decided it wasnt worth the steep decline and then the tiring walk back up.
If you are elderly, have any conditions that make strenuous walking difficult, or are just unfit (like me) then you really need to think about asking people on their return if it is worth the walk that day as it can change from day to day.
We saw really impressive blowholes up north in Quobba so were happy to just keep the memory of those going.

Sadly this is not really worth the walk unless you like more ocean views... the hole does not do much other than make a 'blowing' noise. Too dangerous for young children.
