Kiama – Wow!!!

Crawling with tourists. I guess it is easily marketed as a must see destination within a couple of hours drive south of Sydney. It's really easy to see why. One of those rare places I come across where I can picture myself actually living there.

Lots of motorbike riders taking in the scenery, cruising the rolling hills that meet the sea at this coastal town, hugging several bays along the coastline, surrounded by agricultural dairy and cattle farms.

A thriving town centre well serviced with cafes, restaurants and bars and plenty of all kinds of accommodation. Reminiscent of the vibe of Port Stephens / Nelson Bay area, but not so tropical or protected, certainly more rugged and exposed and many more views to take in given the mountainous terrain and the view north from Kiama Point Blow hole offering westerly views of the northern coastline.

An old obelisk that had a run in with a run away truck and subsequentlky relocated to what seemed like not a very safe spot either.

Kiama Lighthouse, South Coast NSW ANZAC Memorial

The perilous stretch of rugged coastline is watched over by the historic Kiama  Lighthouse, adorned with tribute to the 100 year anniversary of the Great War.

First exhibited in 1887, the lighthouse was designed by EO Moriarty, the engineer in chief for New South Wales Harbours and Rivers. 

In 1920 the light was converted from a fixed green light to the flashing white using automatic acetylene gas operation and subsequently demanned.

The adjacent light keepers residence was later removed.

In 1969 the light began operating using mains electricity with battery back up.
