  • Every time I visit Kiama, I go to the blowhole because that's what you when you visit Kiama. Seeing and hearing the blowhole in action is interesting, provided the sea is rough.  more »
  • great to get up fairly close to the action - safety fences are great! Can get windy though. Easy to park close-by. Lovely Marina close by, and also the bay where you can see string rays and seals up.....  more »
  • The waves don’t come as often as the little blowhole, would definitely recommend checking out the little one for more thrills. Nonetheless, a nice spot for the amazing view
  • Calm sea for my visit. Only small blows happening. But the walkways and lookouts are well done. Plenty of room for everyone to have a good look.
