Located just 75 kilometres north of Carnarvon along a bitumen road, this natural phenomenon is an awe inspiring sight to see. Powerful ocean swells force water through sea caves and up out of narrow holes in the rocks, jets of water erupt into the air, sometimes to a height of 20 metres, creating a spectacular sight.
Just 1 kilometre south of the Blowholes is Point Quobba, a calm coral filled lagoon with fish and shells in abundance. With a white sandy beach, this area is ideal for snorkeling, safe swimming, sun bathing and a great family picnic spot much favoured by locals. This is also a camping area with an overnight fee to be paid to the site ranger.
Although the coast is serene it can be deadly, with a dangerous swell that can turn into king waves, capable of crashing over the top of the rock ledge. This coastline needs to be treated with caution and care – lives have been lost by unsuspecting souls here.
