What and where to eat in Kiama
Fresh seafood, delicious local produce, and juicy Wagyu beef are some of the popular items in Kiama cuisine, thanks to the town’s rich farming and fishing heritage. The Kiama Farmers' Market, held every Wednesday, is a great place to get a hold of fresh seasonal produce and local products if you'd like to whip up Aussie flavours yourself in your Kiama holiday rental.
Café culture is predominant in Kiama, which is why you will notice plenty of these all around town, some offering excellent views, too. The Little Blowhole Art Bar is a popular option, serving a wonderful tapas menu combined with a choice of wines, live music on Sundays, and even contemporary art exhibitions. The incredible views are the cherry on the cake.
Take a short drive to Crooked River Wines in Gerringong, a stunning family-operated winery perched over a valley of the region’s volcanic alluvial soil. For upscale dining and locally sourced ingredients, head to the Oak Room Eleven restaurant. A great wine list and breathtaking views just add to the experience.
Kiama attractions for art and culture lovers
The Kiama Arts Trail, which is open during the first weekend of every month, is the best way to explore the art and culture scene in this lovely town. The trail takes participants to several award-winning art galleries, artists’ studios, and even for taste testings at a few cafés. All the while, you get to travel through some of the most scenic countryside locations in Australia.
The Pilot’s Cottage Museum, located close to the Blowhole Point Visitors Centre, is the ideal place to visit to learn about the regional and maritime history of Kiama. Housed in a beautifully-restored cottage, the museum has pictorial records and information on basalt quarries as well as the region's cedar and shipping industries. Guided group tours are also available.
Kiama with the kids
The Big Blowhole, one of the biggest worldwide, is the top attraction in Kiama, and a favourite with visitors of all ages. Watch enormous quantities of water being naturally blown out of the landscape, and hear the amazing whooshing sound accompanying it. It's truly an unforgettable experience.
The Little Blowhole is equally impressive and although it is smaller, it is considered to be more consistent. Both of these geological wonders were formed by a basalt lava flow around 260 million years ago. The Big and Little Blowholes have viewing platforms and are open at all times.
The Jamberoo Action Park is another popular attraction for family vacationers. Expect thrilling water rides, picnic and barbecue areas, and plenty of eateries. Experience an adrenaline rush on water rides like the Taipan, Rapid River, the Funnel Web, and the high-thrill Zero-Gravity.
To experience the delights of the rainforest, visit the Minnamurra Rainforest Centre in Budderoo National Park. The Rainforest Loop Walk is easy for children and offers wonderful views. Barbecues, picnic tables, and a café are available for a bite and chocolate milk later.
