'WHERE THE SEA MAKES A NOISE"
Interesting, the Aboriginal word for this town means “Where the sea makes a noise," definitely a reference to the famous Kiama Blowhole.
In 1797, George Bass anchored his Whaleboat in the sheltered bay, now
known as Kiama Harbour.
In the 1870’s Dairying was supplemented by Balsat (Blue Metal) quarrying, now one of the Districts major income earners.
Kiama is set in a very pretty area, amongst rolling hills and Dairy Cattle, with the Ocean on the other side with secluded little coves, nice beaches,
jagged cliffs and stunning scenery
This is a small town, with quite a few historical buildings, and some good nearby scenic drives.
It is a favorite of mine!
- Pros:Nice beaches, Nice area
