Having just spent the week at Hepburn Springs this photo. shows a very different view to what we saw. As we have had extremely heavy rains the blow hole was seen at its' very best. No way could anyone go down as in this photo. In fact, my two grandchildren had fun getting saturated standing on the viewing platform. Such was the force of the water, it was unbelievable.
