Every so often, nature likes to show off, and Kiama Blowhole is the perfect place to see it.

Kiama's famous Blowhole is the largest in the world, and when the swell is running from the south-east, you're in for a treat. The 2.5 metres opening in the rock face has had its plumes of water recorded at heights of over 30 metres!

With multiple accessible viewing platforms, the blowhole can be seen from multiple vantage points - be sure to check out the most eastern point to take in the full height of the rock formation.

This landmark has attracted people to the region for over 100 years, and the first sightings were recorded by George Bass when he anchored his whale boat in the sheltered bay, now known as Kiama harbour, in December 1797. It is now estimated to attract 900,000 visitors each year.

Only a short distance from the town centre and railway station, the Kiama blowhole has picnic and parking areas, with a rock pool nearby. Public toilets are always open, and Diggies Cafe is located next to the Visitor Information Centre.
