The Kiama area offers a wide range of activities to suit everyone these school holidays, from adventurous kids to the big kids who are still young at heart. There’s so much to choose from it’s impossible to fit into one day. Before we cover the must-sees, be sure to check out our Autumn School Holidays Flyer!
Explore a magical pixie rainforest
Visit the new magical resident Pixies these school holidays as they set up home at Illawarra Fly. Look closely to see if you can spot these cheeky pixies as they make friends with the local wildlife, play games and make themselves at home in Pixie Hollow!
Enjoy a walk with a view
Need to burn off some energy with the kids? The Kiama Coast Walk is a stunning trek that stretches approximately 20 kilometres from Minnamurra Station (just north of Kiama) to Gerringong in the south, and is suitable for most fitness levels. The walk can be broken into three shorter sections and some parts are suitable for kids’ scooters.
Celebrate the spectacular
Kiss Arts Festival is a seaside celebration of the spectacular, the silly and the sublime! A side-splitting, hand-clapping, wave-splashing, toe-tapping performance feast – where the fringes of Kiama’s Black Beach are transformed for one wondrous weekend into a vibrant village filled with art, heart and the chance to take part.
Feel the wind in your hair!
There’s nothing quite like feeling the wind in your hair, as you explore your new surroundings by bike.
