As its been a year, I thought I would look back to the start of last year where we went for a holiday to the seaside town of Kiama on the South Coast of New South Wales. Quite a lovely spot with plenty to do and see. Situated 120km south of Sydney this makes it an ideal spot for Sydneysiders to holiday here which we are not! Most of the people we met were though. It took us about 5 and a half hours to get there too. The caravan park at Kiama East beach was really good with access directly onto the beach and plenty to do.
Beautiful clear water with nice waves, quite rough when the wind was up otherwise it was calm.
Sun has just set behind the hills to the rear of Kiama which lead to the escarpment up to the plains around Bowral and Moss Vale. It’s quite a drop from Moss Vale through Knights Hill down to Kiama. The Budderoo National Park is here to which is spectacular. Here’s some nice rock pools at Kiama East Beach with the waves crashing in behind them!
A kid being buried alive on the beach. Apparently he was rescued at a later date.
More kids contemplating the ocean.
Around Kiama there a couple of Blowholes. A large one and a small one. When we were there the small one was outpacing the large one by a country mile. That’s a long way by the way!
Above we have some tourists waiting for the action and below we have the small blow-hole from a distance.
The coastline here is quite impressive and there’s a lovely walk along it in either direction from the caravan park. Here a some photos of the sea crashing into the coastline.
There’s something therapeutic about watching the waves roll in If you are looking for a great summer holiday. Kiama is the place to go! Stay tuned for future posts from this part of the world.
