Kiama is famous for its blowhole. On the cliffs at Blowhole Point, waves surging into an underground cavity are compressed and forced upwards, exploding high into the air and accompanied by a loud 'oomph'. The strength varies according to the wind, waves and tides, and when it’s pumping, it always draws a crowd.
Situated on Blowhole Point adjacent to the Visitors Centre, the Pilot’s Cottage Museum tells the story of Kiama’s colourful past, from the time of the cedar cutters to the basalt quarrymen and dairy farmers. Kiama Terrace, the row of weatherboard cottages along Collins Street, was constructed in 1886 to house quarry workers and their families. Don’t miss the Kiama Lighthouse. Nearby, Gerringong and Shellharbour are worth a visit.
