While not the most impressive blow hole I have seen it is in a nice location with free parking and a place to enjoyed the lunch you have packed. A trail runs for miles to the north along the water from this point.

Less than an hour's drive north from Coles bay, this structure is located on an unassuming coastal area. Shortly after driving into Bicheno, there's a small brown sign indicating the turnoff to the blowhole. It's probably not what you would traditionally consider a blowhole but as the waves come it water sprays up between the rocks. The rocks in this... More

rocks in the area with the red colour looks like 'bay of fire' on picture, the simulated blow hole is an attraction as well. Dont know how bay of fire looks like as I dont have time travel north that far.

High tide is the best time for the blow hole to erupt. If you are patient you will get some great shots.

Whilst not a true blow hole, it is rather a groove worn in the rocks, it is worth a visit and is very accessible. Does not need big seas to be spectacular.

The Blowhole was fascinating, watching the ocean go in and out and creating fantastic sprays. Very enjoyable walk.

Loved this stop down the east coast of Tassie. What a place to enjoy a sunset dinner and a walk to see some little penguins. The sand is soft and powdery and the rocks are huge and colourful. A great coastal walk. Top little town to stay in

Great spot to see to see a blowhole close to town and its a easy walk from the carpark. Its a great spot to view nature at its best.

The coastal walk at Bicheno travels along the waterfront for some distance across magnificent granite boulders and along pretty bush tracks. The Blowhole is an attraction along the way and is spectacular and dramatic, with huge sprays surging through to many metres high. If you get too close, you're likely to get wet as waves also crash ashore beside the... More

This was a fun attraction and so close to the car park that it's a great stop for when you're travelling the coast and don't have too much time after seeing other sight. In saying that I could've spent all day here waiting for to the next wave to splash up against the rock. Also weather and tide dependant.
