It's an ideal place to set up in your Kiama Heights accommodation on the New South Wales South Coast.
Kiama Heights is south of Wollongong on the Princess Highway that links Melbourne with Sydney via the coastal route. Close by the bustling city of Wollongong, Kiama Heights offers visitors all the conveniences of city living with all the benefits of a relaxed coastal village. Choosing Kiama Heights holiday rentals provides travellers with wide open spaces overlooking the ocean and rolling hills filled with prized Illawarra Shorthorn cattle.
The nearest beach to your Kiama Heights holiday rental is known as Kendalls Beach. It's beautifully set in a protected bay with Kaleula Head to its south and Kendalls Point to its north. This picturesque, cosy inlet is a perfect spot for an intimate picnic, surrounded by crashing surf and unique rock formations. Kendalls beach in Kiama Heights is a popular family swimming spot that offers safe surf as well as a playground for children and a BBQ for outdoor entertaining.
Two of the most impressive attractions in the Kiama area are its blowholes. When the tides are high and the oceans rough and rugged Kiama's dual blowholes put on a spectacular show, reaching heights of 60 metres and creating an impressive sound and sight. If the surf is pumping, the blowholes are worth a visit at night, when they are floodlit and even more exciting. There's also a lighthouse at Blowhole Point and a wonderfully restored pilot's cottage that's now run as a museum. The smaller blowhole is a few minutes south of the big blowhole, closer to Kiama Heights.
Your stay in Kiama Heights accommodation will allow you to enjoy some the fantastic fishing opportunities around the Wollongong area. Fish such as marlin, morwong, flathead, snapper, mulloway, kingfish and yellowfin tuna are within easy reach once you launch your boat at one of the five boat ramps that are available. If you're more of an inland fisher you'll love the Minnamurra River. This is a mangrove ecosystem where you can while away an afternoon quietly fishing for blackfish, flathead, bream and whiting.
