After visiting the gap and natural bridge a short drive takes you to the blow holes. I guess the fact it's one of the few places you don't pay for entry is a clue that it's not spectacular. A fair walk down the hill and cliffs to get there. There are no railings around the area at the edge of... More

Thos ones different to the other blowholes. This really blows without spray. But its cool to feel the harsh wind coming up from the caves! Cool sound! Feel the blow when you sit right on the edge to the caves and wait for the blow... Loved it!

I enjoyed the walk even though the blow holes weren't blowing on the day. the views were great and I enjoyed seeing the Western Australian wild flowers along the path. The walk was a bit longer than I thought and a bit steep on the way down but the views were well worth it!

It is a steep 900m incline back up from the blowhole which itself was very anti-climatic. The blowholes were difficult to spot and took a while to find at first. They are to the left of the 'blowhole' sign and a bit down although not too far or you'll all off the cliff! We only saw one. There was just... More

Disappointed after a long walk all downhill to see a small gap in the rocks & hearing just a small "whoosh" with a fine misty spray at The Blowholes. I think you have to pick a wild windy day when the swell is up to get the full effect of the spray coming up through the rock ledges. Its tough... More

It is a kilometer walk from the car park and you do need to walk over large granite boulders to the holes that were not active the day we were there. Worth a visit to see the view.

the waves were crashing in to the rocks on our visit , which meant the blow holes were functioning , quite a spectacle and well worth a visit just make sure it's a 'rough seas ' day

I had heard so much about the blow hole that I made a real effort in going to visit them, even with my poor old legs which had three total knee replacement operations in the past and were now riddled with osteoarthritis you can imagine how disappointed I was when after I struggled all the way down and clambered over...

Well...some people said they didn't see any blow ... but I did see a super strong one...I think it depends on luck!! When it blow really strong, you can get wet!! so bring some rain jacket just it case!!

Wouldn't call this a blow hole. Just a crack in the rocks which allows some air to escape. A blow hole should have at least regular water spouts. A long steep walk for very little. And yes the swell was at least 3 to 4 metres. :(
