Kiama – Open For Business

The Kiama area is open and welcoming visitors to enjoy our beautiful area. However, we request that visitors are responsible and respectful of our local community, so please:

  • Stay home if you are unwell.
  • Do not visit if you reside in, or have recently visited an area that has been identified as a COVID-19 Hot Spot, and do not travel until the risk has passed and Government restrictions have been lifted. Current restrictions are in place until 30 July. The stay at home direction applies to people who live in, usually work in, or usually attend a university or other tertiary education facility in Greater Sydney including the Blue Mountains, Central Coast, Wollongong and Shellharbour local government areas.
  • Wear a face mask when you are in an indoor area of a non-residential premises in NSW – this includes workplaces, supermarkets, banks, entertainment facilities and indoor recreation facilities.
  • Maintain a physical distance of 1.5m between your family group and others.
  • Practice good hygiene.
  • Limit visitors to households to a maximum of 5 guests, including children.
  • Remain seated while eating or drinking at indoor venues.
  • Follow the 1 person per 4sqm rule in all indoor and outdoor settings.
  • Where possible, make prior bookings for eateries, attractions, and accommodation.

We encourage visitors to book accommodation in advance and check with local businesses as changes to normal opening hours and services may have occurred.

For the safety of visitors, as well as the wider community, entry restrictions, sign-in procedures, and other COVID-Safe policies must be adhered to. We thank you for your patience and consideration in this regard. For updates, please refer to visitnsw.com/travel-alerts.

Our Tourism Industry (and our region) is still recovering from the lost income incurred during the summer bush fire season, and COVID-19 has further added to this pain. So, we thank you for visiting and assisting in keeping our wonderful local businesses afloat. We can’t think of a more ideal place for a well needed break and look forward to welcoming you to the Kiama area soon.
