The Blow Holes, Albany

2.5
#4 of 12 in Nature in Albany
On a windy day, watch as the sea surges through the rock formations and forcefully spurts water through the granite cracks at The Blow Holes. Stand on the rocks to see the rugged coastline and windswept cliffs. Be careful, though, since the waves are wild and dangerous. Close by are the Gap (natural slit in the rock) and Natural Bridge, all part of a national park.

  • We went on a day where the seas were running and the blowhole was at its best. A bit of noise and Amal spray. Not worth the 600 metre walk.  more »
  • 40 minutes AR to walk the path that leads to Blow Holes. The latter makes either a 3m high throw or nothing. That was the case for us. However, it emits a groan and a violent breath of air. It depends on the tide. Strong descent at the end of the way, so strong uphill on the way back. It's worth going. Not many people.
