Blowhole beach (180) lies at the western boundary of the park. Access is via a steep 4WD decent to a car park on the eastern headland, otherwise there is car parking at Cobblers Hill 2 km inland. The beach lies at the base of a steep valley with a creek draining across the eastern half of the beach, and with headlands and rocks extending 100 m seaward. The beach is 120 m long and composed of sand, with a 70 m wide bar which usually has a permanent rip against the western rocks.

Swimming

While these beaches tend to receive moderate to low waves their remoteness, prevalence of rocks, reefs and permanent rips makes them potentially hazardous. Be very careful if there is any surf on any of the beaches.

Surfing

Only a few beach breaks on the beaches with sand bars.

Fishing

These beaches are more popular for beach and rock fishers, particularly those with 4WD who tend to use Boat Harbour and Blowhole beaches.

General

These are seven difficult to very difficult to access little used beaches. The first three lie in the Deep Creek Conservation Park and are accessible to the public, while the remainder are all backed by private farmland.
