The Blowhole Overview

Discovered by George Bass on his voyage of coastal exploration on December 6, 1797, the local Aboriginals had for generations referred to it as Khanterintee. Under the right conditions, large waves enter the mouth of the Blowhole & compress the air within the inner cavity. As the retreating water leaves, it is forced upward by the compressed air. The escaping air causes the loud "oomph", which accompanies the water spout. A smaller Blow Hole is located a few minutes south of the main Blow Hole.
