  • Well worth a look, had great swell that day and it meant the blowhole was really going. I ended up spending over an hour here watching the waves crash. Well worth a look  more »
  • We really enjoyed it. The waves were humongous (be careful not to get splashed) and it was amazing to see.  more »
  • Came out for a morning walk. Much less than 5 minutes by car from the Centre of bicheno. Parked beside the road and walk on the Rocky goes up sometimes splashes. Also sometimes it doesn't scale. Breakfast included birds in the trees in the foreground, so this is interesting.

  • It is fun looking at the waves splashing against the rock and gushing out into the air. Beware of wet rock surface which is slippery and don't stand too close to avoid getting wet. Good timing in order to get a perfect shot.
  • Great place. Easy access. If you happen to see it during a storm it is spectacular.
  • Magical place to see penguins at night, but a little cold. The blowhole is also great to have fun.
  • Good place to come eat your fish and chips from the gulch. There's even a picnic table and bench (just one though). Beautiful.
  • Got really lucky driving in to town as the sun was setting, the tide was perfect and we got some awesome shots of the blowhole in full force!!
