Carnarvon blowholes

Located 75 kilometres north of Carnarvon, all by bitumen road, this natural phenomenon is an awe inspiring sight. Powerful ocean swells force water through sea caves and up out of narrow holes in the rocks, jets of water errupt into the air, sometimes up to a height of 20 metres, creating a spectacular sight.

Also just one kilometre south of the blowholes is a calm coral-filled lagoon with fish and shells in abundance with a white sandy beach, this area is ideal for snorkelling and a great family picnic spot much favoured by locals. This is also a great camping area with an overnight fee to be paid to the site ranger.

As the coast is serene and yet rugged, caution and care must be taken at all times. For more information about the blowholes, visit the Carnarvon Visitor Centre website or call on +61 8 9941 1149.
