Kiama has managed to maintain its charm as a casual, relaxing resort without falling the way of the highrise compromise which has spoilt other areas. The sort of holiday that the whole family can enjoy awaits visitors here.


Kiama's most famous feature is its 'blowhole' situated on Blowhole Point behind the point's lighthouse. Attracting thousands of visitors each year, this is a rock formation at the edge of the sea which sends spumes of water high into the air as the fierce waves surge through the hole in the rocks and release their energy with a spectacular show of the power of nature. Many generations of tourists have stopped to view and photograph this display.



The Kiama Blowhole is located at Blowhole Point in the centre of town and can be viewed safely from constructed paths and lookouts. There is ample parking for cars and coaches and the Kiama Visitors Centre is situated on the same picturesque point. Here you will find a great range of souvenirs and helpful advice from the Centre's friendly staff. A restaurant also operates from here and the headland's caravan park with a good northerley aspect is very popular all year round.

The local fishing fleet has its wharves on the northern side of Blowhole Point and there is no better place to taste the local seafood at its freshest.
