  • A blow hole...not much else to add. Ok, worth a look. Beautiful coastline definitely worth a beach walk and a swim if you can handle the cold water.  more »
  • These spectacular "splashing" fascinate young and old. An enchanted place. Beware the change of tide.

  • The most fun was watching a girl try to get a selfie with the blow hole in action behind her. At low tide there are very few bursts of water, yet she waited and waited. Last we saw she was still poise...  more »

  • Well worth stopping in if you are in Bicheno but not worth a big detour. If the tide isn't high it can be underwhelming but also can be really good. Very nice beach and rocky area around. It's great that it is a quiet space without to much going on though. Quiet beautiful and something a bit different.
  • Good foreshore walking trail and when the waves are rolling in you can capture some good sea spray up the rock holes. Wear good grippy footwear and have some common sense, Keep your distance and eye on the kids as the area is not fenced. You can get some great photos, especially at dusk.
  • Loved it. You can get so close to it too! Do be careful as there are no guards or rails. Come here at your own risk. Explore with common sense. It can get extremely windy here. Not a good place to bring young kids. If the tides are right you can explore the rock pools. There is a walking track over the rocks of you follow the white arrows painted on the rocks to the north.
  • The sound of water and air from the blowhole is just amazing. You can hear the water compressing into the rock cavity before the sea pounds upward into the sky. Good spot!!!
  • Good stopover to stretch the legs and see the blowhole. Blowhole is just by where you can park your car, so no need for a long walk. Can be underwhelming at low tides but still a nice stop.
