Great if you like rock climbing. Beautiful views of the ocean and rocks. Wind was in the wrong direction to see the water blow through blowholes but still worth a look. Beautiful

Steep walk back up but not too bad. Weren't blowing when we went; and it was actually really windy!! It sounded good, but no water spraying out.

Others bemoan the fact the blowholes aren’t blowing but the walk is majestic and the noise and wind from the holes still make this a great place to view. Gorgeous greenery and a lovely spotted lizard made it perfect. 78 Steps and slope are not...More

It would be best if this attraction was given some more detail at the signpost after we had parked our car as the number of steps are indicated but not the distance by the track. The blowholes were not functioning as blowholes the day we...More

This is one hell of a walk once you get out of your car, and if the blow-holes aren't blowing then it is a colossal waster of time. So make sure to talk to everyone coming up as you are going down - because the...More
