Often a forgotten part of the South Coast for most Canberrans, we recently spent 24 hours in Kiama to get a taste of what this idyllic seaside destination has to offer. Only a two and a half hour drive from Canberra and you arrive to a coastal town full of beaches, natural beauty, cafes and restaurants.
The Kiama Blowhole – this natural wonder is one of the largest blowholes in the world. A sea-cliff cavern that can spout seawater 20 metres or more into the air. Join the Kiama Costal Trail from here for some spectacular views.
Penny Whistler’s has commanding harbour views, with a relaxed atmosphere and a killer fresh menu to match. We couldn’t resist the lure of fish and chips with a crisp glass of rose.
We rounded out the day with a spot os shopping in town, plenty of quaint and charming bookstores, clothing options and a plethora of cafes, restaurants and ice creameries to round out the day.
Overlooking the beautiful Kiama Harbour and Pacific Ocean, Sebel Harbourside Kiama provides both hotel rooms and apartment options. Perfect no, matter what you are looking for.
