Kiama, Shellharbour and surrounds
The Kiama and Shellharbour region is only 90 minutes drive from Sydney and is famous for its surfing beaches including the renowned ‘The Farm’ revered amongst surfers, and the Kiama Blowhole from which water can spout up to 60 metres into the air.
Stay a little longer and the area offers a range of accommodation from B&B’s and country cottages through to new apartments with ocean views. Try snorkelling in Bushranger’s Bay in the marine aquatic reserve at Bass Point, or cool off with a drink at Jamberoo village’s 150-year-old pub. There’s plenty to do in this region – visit the Jamberoo Action Park for rides and water slides to entertain thrill seekers, enjoy a drop at local wineries, stop in to the HARS Aviation Museum at Illawarra Regional Airport, and see the National Trust listed row of late 19th century weatherboard terraces known as Kiama Terrace.
