Great fun for an active family. A 1-2km walk from the attraction to the blow holes. Need to be safe on the rocks so not for young children. Best to go when there is a swell, calm... read more

I dont mind the walk and the stairs - BUT - there are no fences there is no indication once u get to the end of the path exactly where the blowholes are supposed to be . This is high on a cliff with slippery rocks and a 50 metre drop into the southern ocean . Very dangerous for anyone... More

Stopped to see the Blow Holes. Unfortunately not blowing that day but worth seeing as the views are amazing. You do need to have a pretty good fitness level and is not suitable for elderly.

It was a cold and windy day on our visit but we chose it as we knew the blow holes would be blowing well. Fascinating to see.

Great fun for an active family. A 1-2km walk from the attraction to the blow holes. Need to be safe on the rocks so not for young children. Best to go when there is a swell, calm days and the blow holes don't work.

Exciting shoreline. Bit of a hike down to the holes that of course is no guarantee they're blowing...ask people coming up if happening.. Warned at top of 78 steps down after a walking the is safe wide easy to walk path... Walking down was super fun. Rock climbing was super fun. View great. But hard work carrying a 3yr old... More

It's a decent walk from the car park, including 78 steps - fine on the way down , but a bit of an effort on the way back if you are not very mobile or have to carry a small child! Good fun for the kids. There are no railings, but you don't have to get close to the edge.... More

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
