Kiama Council are investigating an apparent spill at the mouth of the Crooked River at Gerroa. Residents and visitors should avoid wading through or swimming in the mouth of the river until further notice.
Swamp Road is now open following recent flooding. Please drive carefully.
Our sports fields have been inspected and their status changed to caution after the recent rain. Users must inspect the ground conditions and make a decision if they will play or train on the fields in their current conditions.
A number of our public facilities will be closed from midday, Friday 8 December 2023 for a staff function. This includes our Administration Centre, Kiama and Gerringong Libraries, Family History Centre and Kiama Leisure Centre. The Minnamurra Waste and Recycling Centre will be open, as well as our Visitor Information Centre, The Pavilion and SENTRAL Youth Services.
Our development assessment team is currently experiencing heavy demand for their services. We ask customers to make a booking for any development advice.
The rock pool is currently open.
This ocean pool sits on the edge of the ocean and is a great place for the whole family to enjoy. Spectacularly situated on the north side of Blowhole Point with access from the harbour road, there is ample parking, amenities and change rooms on site.
The pool is an irregular shape with variable depth and natural rock floor. There is a shallow wading area suitable for young children off to the side.
Kiama Council in partnership with Surf Lifesaving NSW has installed new ERBs at our drowning black spots: South Bombo Beach, Kendalls Beach and Blowhole Point.
In an emergency you can activate the beacon, which instantly connects you to the Surf Lifesaving NSW Operations Centre. A text message also alerts the nearest lifesaver or lifeguard.
