Kiama NSW

Firstly, let me say that Kiama NSW is one of our favourite towns. Anywhere.

It is the quintessential seaside village. The town is surrounded by rolling pastures which fall into the township where you can pick up freshly caught seafood from the docks. It even has a lighthouse!

Kiama is most famous for its Blowhole. Park your motorhome on the cliffs at Blowhole Point and take your vantage point as waves pound against the coastline, forcing water into an underground cavity. The water is then compressed and forced through the Blowhole. Climatic conditions impact the strength of the Blowhole but when the conditions align, it is as explosive sight as you will ever see.

There is plenty more to Kiama than the Blowhole however. The Kiama Coast Walk runs for 22kms starting  at Minnamurra, taking in beaches, headlands and rivers, then into the Town Centre, Blowhole Point and the Little Blowhole before concluding near Gerringong. The Coast Walk is suitable for most fitness levels and features brilliant ocean views, beautiful beaches and picturesque rock formations.

Between May and November, you can also watch the whales migrating. In September, Kiama hosts the Folk by the Sea festival and in late April you can take in the KISS Arts Festival.

And like all great country towns there is a Farmers Market every Wednesday at Surf Beach where you can purchase some fresh seasonal produce and spend time with family and neighbours. There is also a Makers and Growers Market on the fourth Saturday of every month where apart from gourmet food and produce, you can also purchase handmade goods, clothes and eco-friendly products.

Do yourself a favour and add Kiama to your list when travelling on the South Coast. Even better, book a motorhome or campervan now for your next holiday.
