What to do and see in Kiama when staying in our central Kiama Accommodation!
One of the main attractions is the Kiama Blowhole. Every year thousands of visitors come to see the spectacular large fountains of water created by the Blowhole. When the main Blowhole is not "blowing", check out the Little Blowhole a short drive or longer walk further south – it is often spouting when the Blowhole isn't due to its opposite position in relation to tides, currents and winds!
Kiama is a seaside town which features several popular surfing beaches, parks, numerous alfresco cafes and restaurants as well as boutique shops, day spas and indoor Leisure Centre for less clement weather. It is the first real country town south of Sydney and is also accessible by train. It is ideally located on the border of the Illawarra Region to the north and the Shoalhaven area to the south, so is the ideal base to explore the south coast of NSW. Its lush green hills, valleys and rainforest roll down to the sea, reminiscent of Ireland and other parts of the U.K. with its dry stone walls and dairy cattle.
A few minutes drive north of Kiama (or a 10 minute walk around the rocks) is Bombo Beach and Headland, followed by Cathedral Rocks, a natural spectacular rock formation. Continue north, you will arrive at Minamurra River and headland, where the Minamurra River flowing down from the Minnamurra Rainforest meets the Pacific Ocean – ideal for swimming, fishing and kayaking.
Jamberoo Action Park, situated just 10 minutes drive inland or due west from Kiama on the edge of Jamberoo village, is an exciting and popular theme park set amongst the rolling hills and valleys below the escarpment – a must for families with kids of all ages. It is open from September – April. If you continue driving up the mountains past Minamurra Rainforest you will come to the Illawarra Fly Treetop Walk, which provides a unique elevated and inspiring experience of the views, flora and fauna of the rainforest below.
The Kiama Coastal Walk, recently opened after 11 years in the making, is a 6 kilometre walking track extending from Loves Bay, on the southern outskirts of Kiama, to Werri Lagoon near Gerringong, south of Kiama.
A 10 minute drive south of Kiama brings you to Gerroa and Seven Mile Beach National Park, from where you can either divert to Berry to enjoy the boutique shops and cafes or continue south to Jervis Bay for dolphin and whale-watching or swimming, snorkeling and picknicking at the endless white sand beaches such as Hyams Beach or Honeymoon Bay. Other attractions in the area include the Naval Air Museum at Nowra and vineyards such as Coolangatta Estate, the first vineyard in the area and historic homestead of Alexander Berry.
