Come early and stay later this NYE


Destination Kiama is encouraging families planning to spend New Year’s Eve in Kiama to come early and stay later.

This year’s Kiama NYE Sky Show celebrations will commence at 4pm with food and live music in Hindmarsh Park, fireworks at 9pm, followed by the first Laser Show at 9.15pm and the second at 10pm.

The changes have been made to provide a greater variety of things to do over a longer period of time.

This will not only allow families to spend more time in Kiama on New Year’s Eve, but reduce the traffic congestion normally experienced just before and after the 9pm fireworks.

Destination Kiama has provided a program of events, which also shows available car parking around the CBD and harbour.

Destination Kiama is also encouraging families to consider ‘training it’ for the NYE Sky Show.

Sydney Trains will be running services through Wollongong to Kiama approximately every hour, with return services lasting till midnight (

The full program is available online at:

Kiama NYE Sky Show is presented by Destination Kiama, Kiama Municipal Council and Kiama and District Chamber of Commerce, with the support of 96.5 Wave FM, The Sebel Harbourside Kiama, Kiama Coast Holiday Parks, The Pavilion Kiama and Terralong Terrace Apartments.
