Destination Revisited Series

Kiama is a coastal town south of Sydney, in New South Wales, Australia. It is best known for its blowhole – a natural cavity in the fortress-like cliffs that blasts seawater 20 metres or more into the air. There are many more interesting things to do and see in Kiama, from the gorgeous beaches to the picturesque Kiama Coast Walk.

Kiama is about a 1 hour 45 minutes’ drive from Sydney. You can also catch the hourly trains on the InterCity trains from Central station to Kiama station. Enjoy scenic views along the way either by car or train.

Kiama is very tourist friendly, with a range of accommodations to suit all budgets, from luxury boutique hotels to self-contained cottages with coastal views. There are also a number of holiday parks with powered camping sites. The town is bustling with activity, with a variety of cafes and restaurants serving everything from Modern Australian to Asian and Middle Eastern cuisines.

A day out in Kiama is a relaxed, fun activity for the whole family, group of friends or even the solo traveller!
