Great coffee, lunch and dinner dining options. My tip is phone ahead to order your coffee so you aren't waiting awhile when you get there as it is very popular. Contact: 02 42377732 Address: 21 Johnson St, Kiama Downs https://www.stacksburgerhouse.com/menu

This is my all time favourite dining place in Kiama. The restaurant is situated at the site of my old Infants School which is heritage listed and overlooks Kiama Harbour. They make the best cocktails I have ever tasted anywhere. Tip: Be sure to make a booking and ask for a table with water views!!! Aak for the complimentary sparkling water & Accor Card gives you 50% off when dining with 2 people. 02-42307500

Rare landscape like this is to too good miss. Just a twenty minute walk north along the Kiama Coastal walk will get you there. The view over the headland is spectacular. The river is a very popular swimming spot all year round.

One of Australia’s most scenic walks. Ocean views, spectacular rock formations, unspoilt beaches from the mouth of the Minnamurra River south through Kiama to Gerringong’s Werri Beach. Offering a mix of sealed paths, grassed tracks and beach walking, the hills are gentle enough for most fitness levels. An unbroken ribbon of exploration stretching approximately 20 kilometres. Tip: Park your car in Kiama, catch the train to Gerringong and walk back along the Coastal walk for a nice day trip. Lots of great walking maps available here and also hard copies available on your arrival in the studio: https://kiama.com.au/wp-content/uploads/2019/08/new-kiama-coast-walk-brochure.pdf https://kiama.com.au/wp-content/uploads/2019/05/kiama-walking-map.pdf https://kiama.com.au/wp-content/uploads/2019/07/kiama-cycleway-map.pdf

Beautiful scenery that can be reached by walking around the rocks at low tide if you are an athletic type of person, or off Cliff Dr if you just like to look from a distance.
