Blowholes

BlowholesLocated 75 km north of Carnarvon along a sealed road, this natural phenomenon is an awe inspiring sight to see. Powerful ocean swells force water through sea caves causing jets of water to erupt into the air.

During the months of June-November it is also common to see whales frolicking off just of the coast as they make their yearly migration.Blowholes
