Destination Kiama has released the new Kiama Walking Guide to inspire locals and visitors alike to explore our amazing coastline, gardens, wetlands and rainforests.

Destination Kiama Chair Matt Brown said the Kiama Walking Guide provided outdoor opportunities for walkers all of abilities no matter the time of year.

“The Guide is a pocket sized publication covering the 14 walks across our municipality, from the short stroll through the hidden gem of Bonaira Native Gardens to the more challenging but majestic Kiama Coast Walk,” Clr Brown said.

“This is the ideal companion for anyone looking for ways to discover our amazing outdoors, especially as we head into the cooler months.”

The Guide includes a Welcome to Country by Steven Russell of the Dharawal Nation.

People who come from afar, I see all of you. Aboriginal people camped here at this place long ago. We embrace all of you; we open the door to all of you. We lend this place to all of you to live while we sleep. Here, I see my country.

The 14 walks are clearly laid out with time/distance and grade according to the Australian Walking Track Grading System.

The walks also feature not-to-be-missed places, local wildlife, picnic spots, and did-you-know style facts.

There are tips on walking with care, so you can plan an excursion based on your fitness and abilities, pack proper food, water and clothing, and be aware of hazards such as cliffs and tides.

There’s also advice on enjoying your walk while protecting the plants and animals around you, including taking your rubbish with you and which tracks allow pets.

The pages are graced by stunning images from our local photographers, with the design also done locally.

The Kiama Walking Guide is available from the Visitor Information Centre at Blowhole Point.
