So much to love

Nestled into the prettiest nook along the South Coast of NSW and just a picturesque 90 minute drive from Sydney, the Kiama area is busting at the seams with fun and inspiring events. There’s always something on — from epic runs along rolling green hills, scores of music events, arty festivals (our local favorites!) to year-long markets for lovers of all things fresh and delicious. With a vibrant surfing community, the Kiama area is often host to world titles in surfing and bodyboarding competitions. Lest we forget our Aussie roots, we also have local board riding and surf club events.

Local Artisan Markets

If your’re looking for local produce or something original we have a weekly Wednesday farmers’ market and several weekend markets. The selection of fresh produce, fashion, wares, beauty products, children’s toys, eco-friendly products, and more, will be just half the reason you’ll love our markets. The other? How much fun you’ll have meeting producers and mingling with friendly locals!
