Classic countryside with long snaking shores, view of rolling hills and stunning coastal walks – if you are looking for a quick weekend getaway near Sydney, a drive down south to Kiama is place to be.
I have been here numerous times, mostly as a pitstop while driving further south. The last time I was here, we were blessed with a gorgeous weather. The clouds formed formations, and the shimmering surface of deep blue sea caught their reflection, resulting in a sight so mesmerising that one could just sit there and watch.
Walking further, towards the Lighthouse, you can see the Rock Pool adjoining the sea, which during summers is filled with toddlers and adults, enjoying a swim.

I have tried to see the water spurt out of blowhole almost three times now, but always been unfortunate. While many visitors got to see the water reach as high as 20 meters on their first visit.
