The Kiama Blowhole is a blowhole in the town of Kiama, New South Wales, Australia.

Kiama is located along the scenic Grand Pacific Drive from Sydney to Melbourne.

Kiama Blowhole is located next to the lighthouse at Blowhole Point. It has a 2.5 meter wide opening and water shouts out of the top up to record heights of 30 meters.
There’s a second smaller blowhole, the Little Blowhole, which is more consistent than the big blowhole.

The Kiama Lighthouse was first built in 1887 to protect Robertson Basin, a man made harbor to service Kiama’s supply of crushed blue metal and paving blocks for the streets of Sydney.
After several upgrades to the light source over the years it was eventually converted to 240-volt mains electricity in 1969.
The Keeper’s House was destroyed in the 1920s. The single story Assistant Keeper’s House is now a museum.
Kiama Lighthouse is located in Kiama on Blowhole Point.

Blowhole Point Rock Pool
Kiama has two saltwater rock pools and the more interesting one sits on the edge of the ocean situated on the north side of Blowhole Point.
Accessible through harbour road with parking, amenities and change rooms.
The pool is irregular in shape with variable depth and natural rock floor.
