Take in some natural wonders
Is it even a trip to the Kiama area without experiencing the spray of seawater from one of their famous blowholes? Boasting heights of up to 30 metres (on an ideal southeasterly wind and swell day), the Kiama blowhole is a wheelchair-accessible wonder to behold. Alongside its smaller counterpart (the aptly named small blowhole) you can marvel at the super soaker-like activity of the 260-million-year-old lava formation – watch wind and sea swell pushing plumes of water into the air through holes in the rock. Both blowholes can be seen along the Kiama Coast Walk, a stretch of paths and bike tracks that hugs 20 kilometres of seaside. Never fear, the walk can be broken into three manageable tracks and boasts only the gentlest of hills. Wrap up your natural-wonder sightseeing with a peep at the gothic tangles of Cathedral Rocks, a photogenic rock formation just three kilometres north of Kiama.
