Big or small, there's a lot to like about hosting your event here ...
Perhaps it’s Kiama area’s timeless natural beauty. Maybe the friendly, holiday vibe. Or simply the feeling of getting away from it all without needing to compromise on quality services. Whatever it is, Kiama, Gerringong, Gerroa and Jamberoo have built strong reputations as desirable event destinations.
Offering great access, infrastructure, support services and breathtaking backdrops, the area has everything to make organising your event easier than ever. After all, why gather in a concrete jungle when you can be transported to a place where nature shares centre stage?
For a relatively small area, Kiama offers an impressive range of modern and character venues to suit everything from conferences of 300 through to exclusive retreats and team building workshops. Whatever you need, you’ll find it here – with the bonus of high speed NBN broadband throughout the entire area.
When you choose to hold your event here, you’re adding an extra drawcard for your guests or colleagues – as the destination becomes part of your itinerary simply because you’re here and not “somewhere else”. In any event, there’s definitely a lot to like.

What is Freemasonry? Freemasonry had its roots in ancient Egypt and was active as a 'trade organisation' for stonemasons in medieval times. Since the 1700's it has welcomed a broader membership and today Freemasonry is more relevant than ever, giving men, from all walks of life, support to navigate changing times and become the best they can be, to support each other and to enhance their communities. Freemasonry is an international movement with over six million members worldwide but it works very much within the local community. It is founded on a system of knowledge that uses many ancient symbols and stories to pass on its humanitarian values and timeless wisdom. The tradition provides values that transcend materialism and complement the codes of all great faiths. Our values are non-denominational, ethical and based on deep respect for every human being. Despite many misapprehensions, Freemasonry is not a religion, a cult or a conspiracy. Nor does it have any sinister motives or practices. Lodge Kiama No.35, United Grand Lodge of New South Wales and the Australian Capital Territory, Meets on the 2nd Thursday each month, Tyling at 7pm.Learn More
