Tours don't make long stops so while everyone rushes around to soak up the magic of Lord Ard Gorge, the tight time meant abandoning some of the other attractions around the spot.

I was fortunate to be given the chance to visit some of these spots: The Blowhole, Thunder Cave and Sherbrooke River.

All situated on the right from Lord Ard Gorge, driving meant a less than 5 minutes journey from the Gorge. From the starting point, The Blowhole is about 250m away on foot, Thunder Cave about 500m and the mouth of Sherbrooke River, about 1km away. (There is another attraction: Broken Head, which I did not try for) Give yourself an hour at least.

The Blowhole, as it names accurately indicated, is simply a place where the waves were channelled inwards from the narrow entrance of Thunder Cave to generate a loud boom.

Sherbrooke River's mouth is a popular spot for anglers and provides you with perhaps, the closest proximity to the turbulent waters of the Southern Ocean.
