The next cab off the rank in our suburb spotlight series is the picturesque seaside town of Kiama. We’ll provide some insight into what’s to love about Kiama, who calls Kiama home and why should you consider investing in Kiama real estate. Let’s take a look!

What makes Kiama such a great place to live?

A half hours drive south of Wollongong is the scenic seaside village of Kiama. What a spectacular little town it is, framed by the gorgeous Pacific Ocean on one side and stunning green pasture and forest vistas on the other

Without doubt, Kiama’s most well known attraction is the Kiama Blowhole - the largest in the world! The Blowhole, a natural rock formation located next to the Kiama lighthouse, attracts many visitors due to its spectacular display of water shooting up to 20m in the air! After you’ve checked out the Blowhole, take advantage of the incredible views of the coastline at Blowhole Point - you may even spot a whale or two!

Enjoy a good walk? Living in Kiama, you’ll have access to the breathtaking Kiama Coastal Walk, a 22 km walking track which takes you through headlands, rivers, beaches and bays as you work your way from Minnamurra to Gerringong. It doesn’t get better than this.

Into live music? Kiama hosts the fantastic Folk by the Sea music festival in September. Good music down by the beach - definitely a great combination!

In addition to this, Kiama is full of fabulous shopping boutiques and incredible cafes and restaurants. Ritzy Gritz Mexican Stonegrill is a well known favourite, while Table for Amy located in the historic Terrace Houses provides a retro setting for your homemade meal.

With stunning natural attractions and fabulous food and music events, it’s easy to see why so many are drawn to Kiama! Who wouldn’t want to live here?!
