“IGNITE FESTIVAL” TO SPARK A WINTER WONDERLAND
For almost 140 years, Kiama’s Blowhole Point has been a vital source of light helping ships to navigate. But from June 3 to 13, the Point will light up like never before, playing host to the illuminating, exhilarating 2022 IGNITE Kiama Winter Festival, proudly sponsored by Harcourts Kiama.

FRIDAY NIGHT LIGHTS
FRIDAY 3 JUNE
It all begins on Friday 3 June, as we switch on the lights that will see more than 20 of the iconic Norfolk Pines that dot Blowhole Point sparkle in spectacular fashion.
Book quickly for the VIP experience as Diggies Kiama invites you to a mellow evening, dining in style, or ice skating under enchanting lights, while harpist Yasmin Russell provides the “light” entertainment and sets the mood. A perfect way to begin the festival and a unique evening out for couples and friends alike.
THE ICE IS RIGHT
DAILY 4 – 13 JUNE
As we just hinted at, starting from 5pm Friday 3 June, an authentic ‘real ice’ rink will be available on the Blowhole Point tennis courts all thanks to Kiama Coast Holiday Parks.
Open every day and evening through until the long weekend (Monday 13 June), this rinky-dink ice rink welcomes bookings in 45 minute time slots, with skate hire and fitting on site.
For those less confident on skates, pick up a friendly penguin with your booking who will safely guide you around the rink.
Squint and it’ll be like you’re at New York’s Rockefeller Center at Christmas!

Adults $20; Concession $15; Child (under 12) $10; Family (two adult/conc and two children): $50; Penguin hire $5
Groups of 10 adults or more $18 each – offering a great opportunity for Office Team Building or gifts to your loyal customers. School and community group bookings also welcomed.
