Markets & Shopping

For many, the boutique shopping here is as much a drawcard as our golden beaches, green rolling hills and relaxing vibe – and some of Kiama’s stores have responded by producing their own guide (available at the Visitor Information Centre). Or take a short drive to nearby Gerringong and Jamberoo to discover a mix of coastal chic, vintage treasures and a popular surf shop. These are the places where the boutique shopping essence is truly captured – searching corners for one-of-a-kind items in a one-of-a-kind corner of the world.
