Kiama and surrounds

Set amongst green rolling hills and pristine beaches, the picturesque Kiama area is just a 90-minute drive south of Sydney.

Kiama is home to the world's largest blowhole, a natural spout of water that regularly shoots up into the air with a rush, attracting large crowds when the wind, waves and tides are pumping. Next to the visitor centre at the blowhole, the Pilot's Cottage Museum tells the story of Kiama's maritime history.

One of the best ways to enjoy the area’s stunning views is to follow the 22km Kiama Coast Walk. Beginning at Minnamurra, this spectacular walk weaves past headlands, rivers and beaches to Blowhole Point, before pressing on towards the beautiful bays and beaches around Little Blowhole and the majestic escarpments of Gerringong. Follow the walk at your own pace for superb ocean views and secluded beaches and bays.

The Kiama area is also home to three excellent golf courses, each set within spectacular scenery. Enjoy fantastic views from the Kiama Golf Club, the Jamberoo Golf Club and the Gerringong Golf Club. With panoramic views plus modern clubhouses and restaurants overlooking the courses, these clubs have everything you could need for a day on the green.

Children, Kiama Beach

Nearby Gerringong is the quintessential Australian beach town, situated on a headland that offers panoramic views of the ocean and Werri Beach. The next town to the south is the small coastal town of Gerroa, known for its major natural attraction, Seven Mile Beach National Park, a sprawling expanse of virtually deserted coastline running all the way to Shoalhaven Heads.

Jamberoo is another historic village located in a picture-perfect valley lined with winding country lanes and lush countryside. Enjoy lunch at the Jamberoo Pub, take a walk through the lovely Minnamurra Rainforest, visit the Illawarra Fly Treetop Walk or Jamberoo Action Park.

Explore the area further by following Saddleback Mountain Road from Kiama towards Jamberoo. As Saddleback Mountain rises from the coast to a magnificent lookout, enjoy panoramic views; on a clear day, as far as Cronulla in the north and Pigeon House Mountain on the South Coast. Hoddle's Track is an enjoyable seven kilometre return walk along the escarpment from the lookout.

There are nine beautiful beaches to enjoy in the Kiama area, including Kendalls, Easts and Seven Mile beaches. Accomodation by the ocean front is also possible, putting the unspoilt coastline right at your front doorstep.
