Kiama Heritage Walk
Beyond the holiday nostalgia, the Kiama region has a rich past, with stories around every corner just waiting to be explored…
As you make your way through the area, you’ll find plaques and interpretative signs that provide a window into how things used to be.
Grab a copy of the Heritage Walks brochure from the Kiama Visitor Information Centre which highlights historically significant points of interest in the Kiama town centre and surrounding suburbs of Gerringong and Jamberoo.
