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 bursting 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 favourites!) to year-round 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.

Be sure to check out our ever-growing workshops page for all manner of fun skills you can learn, from painting, and pottery to jewellery-making.

Kiss Arts Festival

A Festival for Every Taste

Looking to time your trip with a fun festival? From international arts to surf inspired music, food, wine and more, the Kiama area is home to many incredible festivals. We look forward until a time where we can offer our regular line up of festivals very soon.


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!
