Located 75 kilometres north of Carnarvon, along sealed bitumen roads, 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, creating jets of water erupting into the air (sometimes up to 20 metres high!), creating a spectacular sight.
One kilometre south of the Blowholes is a calm coral-filled lagoon with fish and shells in abundance and a white sandy beach, ideal for snorkelling and a great family picnic spot much favoured by locals. You can prise oysters from nearby rocks, while crayfish can be caught amongst the reef. It is also a great camping area, with an overnight fee to be paid to the site ranger.
To reach the Blowholes, travel north along the North West Coastal Highway from Carnarvon. Please note that fresh water is not available here, so ensure you have a decent supply before leaving town.
Mother Nature's power is evident in this part of the world, with the coast serene yet rugged; be mindful of tides and the potential for king waves, and take care at all times.
