Kiama Coast Walk

A 90 minute drive south of Sydney along the Grand Pacific Drive is Kiama, where you’ll discover uncrowded beaches, marine and national parks. A great way to explore the area and enjoy this magnificent coastline is along the Kiama Coast Walk, a 22km trail that can take you from Minnamurra to Gerringong. During the whale migrations you can take in some Whale watching along the coastal headlands.


The Kiama Coast Walk consists of 3 sections:

  • North Section — Minnamurra River to Kiama Blowhole
  • Mid Section — Kiama Blowhole to Loves Bay
  • South Section — Loves Bay to Gerringong


Next to the Kiama Lighthouse is the Kiama Blwohole, a natural rock formation fuelled by powerful southeast ocean swells. You can experience the tremendous power of the ocean with spouts of seawater that can reach more than 20m into the air. Often spectators who stand too close are drenched by the spray. The area is floodlit until 1am, so make a night of it & enjoy the spleandor. If no action is happing at the main blowhole, drive about 10 minutes south to the Little Blowhole, which relies on the prevailing northeast seas

Go further inland & explore the Minnamurra Rainforest, the Illawarra Fly Treetop Adventures or Jamberoo Action Park and the pretty village of Jamberoo. Further down the coast is Gerringong, situated on a headland with magnificent coastal views of the ocean and Werri Beach. Or learn how to surf at Surf Camp Australia in Gerroa. There are 9 beaches in the Kiama area to choose from. While you are in the area, you can also visit the Seven Mile Beach National Park.

You can travel by train from Sydney to Kiama. It is about two hours travelling and passes through Wollongong.
