Kiama is a seaside town with white sandy beaches and rolling surf that attracts people from all over Australia. The main attractions are the famous Blowhole, Minnamurra Rainforest and Jamberoo Wildlife Sanctuary – all within easy reach of Sydney. The village is cute, the scenery is amazing and the food delicious. It’s also a great place to meet people as everyone is always friendly. There’s a great selection of restaurants too so you can have your pick of cuisine options.
Perfect for a day trip if you’re based in the city, or a weekend. It’s also great for longer holidays as you can easily spend several weeks travelling up and down this part of New South Wales.
Saddleback Mountain Lookout: offers visitors spectacular views to the east over the ocean and to the north to Bulli from a steep windy road. Once in the car park there is a sign mapping out the 3 lookouts. One up the hill, one to the left and one to the right. The one up the hill is blocked by trees so not worth the treck. The one to the left is not well signed posted but walk down a grassy hill and enter a path at the bottom that leads you into a tree covered path for about 5 min. While this view is lovely the best and easily accessible lookout is the one directly off the car park to the right. It is only a 1-2 min walk and has the far superior views.
Cathedral Rocks: Located just three kilometres north of Kiama at the southern end of Jones Beach, this distinctive rock formation is part of the geologically fascinating coastline. Cathedral Rocks, has lured sightseers since 1890. These volcanic rocks, while intensely hard, have many joints. These joints have been eroded over the years, leaving these mysterious rock formations. The rocks may be viewed from Cliff Drive or studied from close range by approaching from the north. These rocks are a photographer’s delight!
Crookhaven Heads Lighthouse: looking for a quick walk and not afraid of steps then take a pretty walk up to the now disused Crookhaven Lighthouse. Overlooking the rocks at low tide, clear views from Orient Point, Greenwall Point, Seven Mile Beach through to Penguin Head. Lots of rock fishing happening during low tide.The original Crookhaven Heads Lighthouse was constructed of timber in 1882 and located as part of the Shoalhaven Signal Station on the beach 200 metres to the west of the current lighthouse. The new brick lighthouse to the south of the mouth of the Shoalhaven River was commissioned in 1904 and the old wooden lighthouse was immediately demolished.
