See (and hear) water from the ocean’s force as it is pushed up into the rocks, creating the spout of Kiama Blowhole — the biggest natural blowhole in the world. Kiaram-a is believed the be the Aboriginal phrase meaning “the noise of the sea.” As water entered the enclosed space in the rock formation, the air is compressed and released with a low sound and the upward spouting of the water. Explosions of water can reach up to 80 feet high — quite the natural spectacle.
Coastal explorers first discovered the blowhole in 1797, though it had been significant to local Aboriginal communities for centuries prior. There is also a lighthouse overhead and a smaller blowhole fittingly called “Little Blowhole” a few minutes walk away. Picnic facilities and rock pools are present beside the blowhole, as well as a small cafe and visitor information center.
