Visit the Kiama Lighthouse

I experienced the charm of the lighthouse on the headland as it shone bright, illuminating the natural splendor of its surroundings near the blowhole.

It has stood tall since 1887. And, guided seafarers through the treacherous coastlines for over a century. So, it represents the maritime history of Kiama.

I found the opportunity for photography at the lighthouse at different times of the day. And, you can see my photography in my post about the lighthouse, click here to read my post. And, you can experience it too.

See the Kiama Blowhole

Have you seen a blowhole in person?

I found watching the force of the ocean creating the water to burst up through the hole in the rocks amazing.

And, I could see and hear the force of nature at the blowhole.

It's nearby to the lighthouse on the headland on Blowhole Point Road. And, they are within walking distance of each other. You can read my post about the blowhole.
