Come and view Kiama’s famous blowhole – the largest in the world!
A viewing platform with disabled access gives good views of the Kiama Blowhole, stairs also lead you down closer to the action.
This landmark has attracted people to the region for over 100 years, since George Bass’ first sighting when he anchored his whale boat in the sheltered bay, now known as Kiama Harbour, in December 1797. The Kiama Lighthouse, the blowhole’s neighbouring landmark, is merely steps away — and is another favourite attraction for visitors.
It is estimated that a million people visit the blowhole every year to view the spectacular plumes of water that can be seen when the seas are running from the south east.
The “big Blowhole” is only a short distance from the Kiama town centre and railway station. Picnicking areas, BBQ’s and a rock pool are found nearby. Similarly, the Kiama Visitor Information Centre located at Blowhole Point and is open each day from 9.00am to 5.00pm, offering maps, souvenirs, ticket sales and public toilets. Diggies Kiosk is located next door for coffees and light snacks. Looking to learn about the history of the area? The Pilots Cottage Museum sits directly across from the Visitor Information Centre, be sure to check this out as well.
