  • Just a short walk from the carpark. You can get real close to the blowhole and be careful as it gets slippery. The water splash from the blowhole is quite frequent but sometimes the splash are smaller...  more »

  • 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!!
