In 1797, English explorer George Bass remarked on the ‘tremendous’ noise emanating from this blowhole, a natural phenomenon that has since become Kiama’s most famous tourist attraction. When the south-easterlies are blowing, seawater is pushed through a hole in the cliff face, sometimes shooting water 60 metres into the air. Find the blowhole at Blowhole Point, where you’ll also find an 1887 lighthouse and the town’s visitor information centre. A smaller blowhole is located 2 kilometres south of town.
