It's a lengthy downhill ( then uphill) walk to these but we turned back halfway because lots of disgruntled people were walking back saying there was nothing to see. In fairness there is a sign at the beginning of the walk warning that you may not see them working but it was a bit complicated to assess whether it was... More

Best tip I could give you is ask someone walking back up to the carpark IF the holes are Blowing! It is quite a walk down the hill and as always appears a lot longer on the way back up that same hill, even longer if they ain't working that time of day. The walkways are a undulating in spots...

From the car park down to the blow holes is about 800m which is easy as it is all downhill. However the walk back is all uphill which will tax you if you are not fit. When you get to the blowholes the view is great but the actual blowholes are underwhelming to say the least. On the day we... More

The surrounding landscape is very powerful and worth the visit just for that. Thr blowholes themselves arent that spectacular, a some noise and water vapour coming through cracks in the rock. Go for the novely of it but beware the walk may be longer than you expect.

It is a long walk to get to the blowholes down a steep gradiant even longer walking back up.If the seas are not high then the blowholes are doing nothing which is the case on the day I was there (Hence the poor rating). On another day with high seas I would imagine it would be magnificant and well worth... More

Save yourself the strain. Save yourself the sanity. If you have small kids, don't even think about doing it. The downhill walk will kill your knees, and then the uphill return to the car will almost kill you! Two days later and I can't sit, walk or drive properly, having used muscles I forgot I had. What is worse, is... More

It's a good hike to the blow holes from the car park and seems twice as far up hill back to the car park but the view is awe inspiring. I'm not sure how to tell if the blow hole is actually 'blowing' for want of a better word so I guess it's just the luck of the draw. Worth... More

Fairly steep walk down and back up, not suitable for really young children. Stunning scenery however!

Dragging along a three year old, it was not a fun walk back up the hill, but it's well paved etc. The sites are beautiful of course, but it's scary to see how many stupid people hold their infants and young kids over the gap where they could slip and fall into it quite easily. Call me a poo-pooer but... More
