    Quite a busy attraction.
    Took some family members here during a morning in Kiama. It was a bit chilly with the wind but the sun was shining. The blow hole was in fine form with spray coming at constant intervals. There is plenty of room to wait and see either at the top or down the stairs. There is also a good view out to the pacific from the lookouts as well. Plenty of parking for those coming to have a look.

    Well worth a visit.
    We were here at a time of no wind so the blow was not that spectacular. Do not let that put you off going, it's nature. We still had a few good pictures and hearing the oohs, ahhs of adults and squeals of children made it worth going.

    It is a must to see when you visit Kiama area. The sound and the water movement are both amazing. I suggest tourists to see Kiama blowhole first before going to Little Blowhole as the later one is even more powerful. Kiama blowhole is near kiama lighthouse and the rock pool so you can plan to visit all 3 together easily. There are different viewpoints for Kiama blowholes and i prefer the ones closer to the hole.

It’s hard to review a natural formation, so instead I will review the facilities near it. Parking was adequate for a quieter day, could be tricky if hear during holidays or summer vacations. Pathways were okay but could be better for those with balance or mobility issues. There is an alternate route for those with wheelchairs or prams. Did not see any public restrooms. More seating would be good for nice days.

Not our day to see the blowhole but the area is a great spot for clambering over rocks and admiring the view. A lot of people about. The second less known blowhole is actually more reliable!

Nature’s persistence!! That is what this is! When we were there, the tide was low, so the water did not shoot us as much as I had expected. But it was worth it!!
After the blowhole, we walked on the rocks and came to a small secluded cove, where we dipped our feet in the cool water.
Wear good hiking shoes.

Went last Sunday, weather was great. Amazing views and the pathway is very walkable and stable. Easy excess via Kiama train station.

Great place and Kiama is really nice with plenty to do a bit crowded on weekends though. The markets on Thursday after are great and Jamberoo is nearby

This is a natural thing so it realizes on the swell of the ocean, when we were there, there was not a large swell but still enough to enjoy the water shooting high in the sky, there is plenty of free parking and a cafe close bye.

This was a disappointment as the conditions were not suitable for the blowhole. There were one or two squirts. I would go up to the lookout anyway as the view is very nice. Be aware that there could be a tour bus visiting so expect a crowd. The public toilets are very clean and in good condition.
