   Blow Hole, Hepburn Springs

Location: On Sailors Creek at the end of Blow Hole Road west of Hepburn Springs.
The Blow Hole is a tunnel excavated through a narrow rock spur by miners, probably in the early 1860s, to divert the creek water. The exposed dry creek bed could then be worked for gold. A recent cliff collapse has forced the Hepburn Council to close the access path down to the east side of the tunnel.
