The road signage to drive to the Blow Hole is excellent. Once you arrive there is a large sealed car park and a very safe walkway down to the viewing platform. On the day we were there the sea swells were fairly placid, however, in...More

A nice grassed area at the edge of the town rising up to the blow hole and an ANZAC memorial. Sealed tracks and easily accessible.

The ocean was very rough to day we went so the blowhole was spectacular. Several tourists wandered down to the seaside platform, not realising that the spray was very strong. They got drenched. We tried not to laugh. A must-see in Kiama.

Must go during high tide to see and enjoy the blowing water. It's very hard or almost nothing to see during low tide. Nonetheless, the scenery around is great!

Recommend leaving the car at the bottom of the hill walk up one side, see the blow hole then walk down the other, this in all will take you about 40 min but worth the time and effort.

The best time to visit is when the Tide, Swell & Wind are all present pushing the water up into the Whole in the Rock. Spectacular when it gets going. Can work OK at other times, but may have to wait for a good Spray....More

For best experience check online about high tide time and schedule your visit. During high tide the waves crash hard beneath the blow hole and makes the best view to witness. At low tide the blow hole stays calm with less... More
