The Lowdown

Kiama Coast Walk begins at Blowhole Point in central Kiama and follows tracks along the water’s edge and the roads. Follow the signposts past Storm Bay and up alongside Kiama Showground, which often has rugby matches on in the cooler months, it’s probably the most scenic football fields in the country. The track will then take you along Surf Beach, which is home to the famous Kiama Wedge, you might see some of the region’s best boardriders catching waves.

The next beach along the coast is Kendalls Beach, which normally has calmer waters, so it is a good place to stop for a swim. On the headland south of Kendalls is a heavy reefbreak which absolutely pumps when a decent swell rolls in.

The track then veers away from the coast and along the road to lead you to Little Blowhole. Affectionately known to locals as “The Little Blowhole That Could” because it actually blows harder and more frequently than Kiama’s flagship blowhole, it is definitely one to tick off the blowhole bucket list.

The track then continues up around the headland to be greeted by amazing views of East Beach and out to the next headland. East Beach is probably the calmest, cleanest beach in Kiama, so whip out the GoPro and take some highly sought after underwater selfies.

The last part of the walk takes you up the next headland into Kiama Heights past some cows, to a picnic area. You can finish the walk with a picnic with a great view.
