This unusual rock formation is spectacular to watch the spurts of water high into the air. Most impressive when seas run from the south-east. View this spectacular sight from the viewing platform, which is wheelchair accessible, or walk on the pathway to obtain a closer view.
Kiama Light House
The Kiama Lighthouse was established in 1887, 10 years after the creation of the Robertson Basin, a man made harbour to service Kiama's supply of crushed blue metal and paving blocks for the streets of Sydney.
The original apparatus was an oil burner with a catadioptric fixed lens producing a light that was visible for nine miles. This was upgraded to the local town coal gas in 1908 with an intensity of 1,500 candelas and a range of fifteen miles. This was further upgraded to acetylene gas and group flashing in 1920. At this point the light was de-manned. In 1969 the light was converted to 240-volt mains electricity. Kiama Lighthouse is located in Kiama on Blowhole Point.
Kiama Rock Pool
The pool is situated on the north side of Blowhole Point with access from the harbour road. There is ample parking and there are amenities and change rooms on site. The pool is irregular in shape with variable depth and natural rock floor. A shallow wading area suitable for very young children is also available.
Little Blowhole Kiama
The Little Blowhole is a little bit hard to find, but well worth the effort, situated just off Tingira Crescent three kilometres south of the Kiama Township. The spray reaches remarkable heights and can be viewed from a viewing platform or on the rocky foreshore. From here, you can walk around the headland south to Easts Beach. Works best when seas are from the North East.
Bombo Beach Kiama
Bombo Beach (NSW 392) is an exposed 1.2 km long east-facing beach located between Cathedral Rocks and Pheasant Point. While the beach is highly visible from the northern end it is difficult to access requiring a circuitous drive under the railway, to the car park and amenities on the northern slopes overlooking the beach, with the only other access via a walking track under the railway at the southern end. The abandoned Bombo Quarry dominates the northern headland, with a steep rise to Pheasant Point in the south. A small creek crosses the northern end and the larger Spring Creek drains out against the southern rocks. The beach receives waves averaging 1.5 m, which maintain a rip-dominated surf zone, with strong, permanent rips against each headland and 3-4 more transient beach rips in between. The rips are usually visible as you drive south and probably result in many swimmers continuing on past to safer beaches. The rips and bars however produce the beach breaks for which the beach is well known by surfers.
