Below is an article by Tom McGay for our regular Caravanning from the back seat feature.
If you’re looking for a family friendly coastal trip these holidays, I suggest heading down to Kiama.
Kiama has some of the most beautiful sights Australia has to offer. From picnics along the glamorous beaches, to visiting the infamous blowhole, Kiama has much to offer.
Kiama brings a warm welcoming feeling to any that visit. Every weekend the locals showcase beautiful food and fresh produce at the market. An iconic activity all tourists tend to do at Kiama is to have dinner on the beach. Nothing is better on a hot summer’s day than beating the heat with a good feast along the beautiful water!
Getting active at Kiama is definitely a must for travellers. The go-to spot for all runners and walkers is the Gerringong to Kiama Coastal Walk. The 11km Gerringong to Kiama Coastal Walk offers some breathtaking views as you go along the track. If you intend to go on this track, allow around 6 hours for walkers and 2 hours for runners to complete it. Bring along a water bottle to ensure you stay hydrated and you will be set. If you’re lucky you might even be able to spot some whales!
One of the best parts about staying in Kiama is all the other close by towns, all ready to be explored. From Jamberoo to Wollongong there’s so much exploring to be down outside of Kiama too! There are many caravanning sites available in Kiama and nearby. Don’t miss an opportunity to visit Kiama when it is safe to do so!
