Day 2 - Blowholes
Start your day with a refreshing swim in the natural rock-pool below Kiama lighthouse. Then head up the hill to see if the Blowhole is blowing. If there's a swell from the south east it can be spectacular. Then follow the coastal walk to the Little Blowhole, taking in Kendall's Beach and Kaleula Head where a bombora wave can often be seen. Then up to Little Earth cafe for a snack. The coastal walk continues and can be followed all the way along the clifftops to Werri beach, and details of the coast can be found on https://kiamacoastwalk.com/

Day 3 - Bushwalks
After a breakfast at one of the dozens of cafes in Kiama, heading west for 10 minutes from Kiama will bring you to the village of Jamberoo, where there are 2 cafes for a coffee before continuing just 5 minutes further drive to where the rainforest opens to share its secrets. The Minnamurra Falls Rainforest Centre is the starting point for a peaceful half day walk through shady undergrowth https://www.nationalparks.nsw.gov.au/things-to-do/walking-tracks/the-falls-walk. From there, rejoining Jamberoo Mountain Road will take you up the escarpment where several walks of varying length are available at Barren Grounds. After a picnic lunch, you could head further along the top of the escarpment to the headwaters of the Kangaroo River where a spectacular view awaits you on the Carrington Falls walking track.
