Kiama, Where Beaches Abound

A versatile location for a holiday, Kiama is located on the South Coast of New South Wales. The popular tourist destination is set approximately 120 kilometres south of Sydney and is accessible by train, for those who do not wish to hire a car, and vehicle, at just a 2-hour drive. Rolling countryside, lush rainforest and unspoiled beaches give Kiama outstanding scenery and a variety of activities to keep visitors busy. Just as the attractions are varied, the rental accommodations are, as well. Holidaymakers have access to ocean view apartments, seaside cottages and more in Kiama.

Surf's Up

When heading to Kiama, do not forget to bring your board along, as there are surfing beaches for every skill level. The main and most popular beach is Surf Beach, and it is patrolled on weekends and offers many amenities, such as park and picnic areas, changing rooms and car parking. For skilled surfers, head over to Bombo Beach, which is famous for its strong undercurrents. Just getting the hang of riding waves? No problem—Seven Mile Beach is the perfect destination, with its safe surf, and there are many surfing classes held there, as well. With nine beaches in total, Kiama offers something for everyone.

Natural Beauty

The ocean scenery in Kiama is unbeatable; however, for a change of pace, enjoy the gorgeous scenery falls a little further inland. Head over to Bonaira Native Gardens to discover many native rainforest species, to stroll along designated pathways and to see a monument dedicated to the local aboriginal people, the Wobi Wobi. Venture up Hoddles Track to Mount Noorinan to check out beautiful mountain views and to enjoy the many species of bird that call Kiama home. Just a short drive from Kiama, Budderoo National Park is a great place to walk amongst the treetops, spot waterfalls, enjoy the lush rainforest and stroll along paved paths with observing wildlife.

However, even with all of the inland glory, one of the most notable natural attractions is the Kiama Blowhole. This underground cavity fills with water as the waves crash upon the shore, and when full, a loud cannon-like boom shoots water into the air. Bring a picnic along and make a day of it, and do not forget your swimming suits, as there is a small rock pool nearby.

Learn Kiama's History

There is no lack of history in Kiama, and this makes it the perfect destination for a history buff. Bring your furry friend along to the dog-friendly Bombo Headlands to see unique towers of basalt, a reminder of the quarrying of the late 1880s. Strap on your walking shoes, and follow one of Kiama's 400 hand-built historic dry stone walls. The Kiama Lighthouse, the Kiama Post Office and the Old Kiama School are some of the many historic buildings in the area. For a large dose of history at once, check out the Pilot's Cottage Museum, as it explains Kiama's maritime heritage.

Something for Everyone

With shops, restaurants, cafes and everything in between, downtown Kiama is booming with activities for holiday goers. There are many prestigious art galleries, many of which showcase paintings by local artists. Visit My Chocolate Shoppe to sample decadent candies and to drink freshly brewed coffee. Shopping options abound throughout the downtown area, while everything remains spaced out enough for a light and airy feel. Parks are scattered around Kiama to give you a chance to enjoy some green space between your adventures.

Plan Your Visit to Kiama

Visiting Kiama is comfortable at any time of the year; however, if you are hoping to take advantage of all the coastal activities of summer, the best time to holiday is between November and March. The scenery is gorgeous throughout the year, and it is never too cold in Kiama, thanks to the oceanic climate.

Is this heaven?

5 of 5
I have not been to heaven. But I am sure the view from this place does like heaven! Do not need more word to describe this place. I will definitely be back. Thanks Arthur and Sandra shared this place with us to leave unforgettable memory as Kiama. I am already missing this place.

Saltwater Cottage

5 of 5
Saltwater Cottage is a super getaway from Sydney, and very easy to get to. It is close to some very good walks but unfortunately for us the organised walks had to be cancelled due to heavy rainfall
