The Town

Kianga is a small town on the South Coast of New South Wales, Australia, immediately north of the town of Narooma. At the 2006 census, Kianga had a population of 685.

There are two shops in Kianga; one is Antons, a takeaway store and cafe. It has been previously called the Kianga One stop and Eats at the Beach. Another store is Pat and Gils restaurant. it has been out of business for quite a long time. There are two bus stops in Kianga. One at the turn off to the Boat ramp and another when you come from the north into the town. There is a Telstra phone booth in the town just down the road from the Antons.

There are three beaches in Kianga. Kianga Main, Kianga Reef and Carters. Duesbery's to the north and Bar Beach could also be considered beaches in Kianga. There are a few dangers in Kianga. Kianga Main ahs strong currents on the beach. On the bike path through the town there is also a violent magpie. During the right time of year plovers can also be problems. In Kianga you can go surfing, body boarding and swimming as well as ride your bike on the bike path.

There is a lake in Kianga. It is where sewage treatment is done so I would not recommend swimming. It is also part of the marine park and fishing is banned (even though I wouldn't fish there anyway).

The South Coast

The South Coast refers to the narrow coastal belt from Sydney in the north to the border with Victoria in the south in the south-eastern part of the State of New South Wales, Australia. It is bordered to the west by the coastal escarpment of the Southern Tablelands, which is largely covered by a series of national parks. To the east is the coastline of the Pacific Ocean, which is characterised by rolling farmlands, small towns and villages along a rocky coastline, interspersed by numerous beaches and lagoons (known in Australia as lakes, especially in place names).

The South Coast includes Shoalhaven district in the north and the Bega Valley in the more remote south as well as the Eurobodalla Shire and the Commonwealth Jervis Bay Territory which is adjacent to the City of Shoalhaven Local Government Area. Some definitions of the region include the Illawarra, however it is often seen as a separate and distinct region of New South Wales.

Narooma

Narooma is a town in the Australian state of New South Wales on the far south coast. The town is on the Princes Highway. The name is said to be derived from the Aboriginal word meaning ‘clear blue waters’. At the 2006 census, Narooma had a population of 3,100 people.

Montague Island, a National Parks and Wildlife Reserve, is eight kilometers offshore from Narooma. The island was sighted off the coast by Captain Cook in 1770.

The heritage town of Central Tilba is nearby to the south.
