Kiama Overview

Kiama is a seaside town located in the Illawarra area of NSW, 120km south of Sydney.

The name Kiama derives from the Aboriginal word 'kiarama' which means 'place where the sea makes a noise.'

The name is suitable due to the world famous Kiama Blowhole, an area where sea spray shoots into the air due to waves surging in underground cavities.

Kiama boasts a laid-back atmosphere and a town offering craft shops, knick knack shops, restaurants and cafes.

The surrounding areas also offer many great surfing beaches.
