Carnarvon blowholes

This spectacular site is due to powerful ocean swells forcing water through sea caves and up out of narrow holes in the rocks. These create jets of water that erupt into the air up to a height of 20 metres.

Please take care not to get too close as they jets of water can be unpredictable at times.

The blowhole is located 75 kilometres north of Carnarvon.

Just one kilometre south of the blowholes is a lovely coral-filled lagoon with an abundance of marine life and backed by a white sandy beach. This area is ideal for snorkelling and camping.

For more information about the blowholes, visit the Carnarvon Visitor Centre website or call on (08) 9941 1149.
