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.
Kiama is big on supporting its community with many local events and markets. Kiama Farmers market is held every Wednesday at Surf Beach all year round and offers fresh local produce and is a plastic bag free market. There is also a monthly Seaside market and a Growers and Makers market held once a month down at Black Beach. Other reoccuring events is the annual Kiama Show, Rotary classic car show and many sporting events such as Kiama Sevens Rugby tournament, fishing, surfing and running events.
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 is a stunning 22 km pathway accompanying our sparkling coastline. The walk is a mix of sealed pathways, beaches and grassed tracks - suitable for most levels of fitness. It stretches from Minnamurra River in the north to Gerringong in the south with several access points along the way. Stunning coastline worth exploring!
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 or Crooked River Winery in Gerringong with its spectacular views, great food and wine which also hosts many events.
