Depending on the swell, size and direction of approach to the sea cliffs The Blowholes may or may not be blowing. When they do, the noise is quite impressive and this attraction should not be missed, especially on a day when the ocean swell is high. This walk is the most popular in Torndirrup National Park, but be sure to keep away from the ocean at all times, as several lives have been lost in this vicinity.
The 1.6 km return walk begins at the western end of the carpark and is well signposted. Follow the bitumen path for about 400 metres to the top of some steps. There are fine views of Peak Head to the south-east and Eclipse Island to the south-west. After the steps the path swings to the right then traverses an open granite area. For more information visit TrailsWA.
Signs indicate the location of the Blowholes. At the Blowholes, do not proceed any further to the ocean and do not stand over the Blowholes.
