My husband and I discovered this little gem of accommodation a few years ago on our return from a 3 week trip through NSW. We returned there just recently and I want to share with you the fabulous facilities this Holiday Park has to offer.
Firstly, where is Kiama? Kiama is situated about 90 kms (56 miles) south of Sydney on the South Coast. Kiama was declared a municipality in 1859 and has become one of the loveliest tourist spots in NSW. As you can see from the picture below, the township enjoys a beautifully situated and sheltered harbour and the surrounding suburbs hug the cliffs and beaches of the area.
The most well known tourist attraction is the Blow Hole that is situated on the entrance to Kiama Harbour. When the conditions are right and there is a high tide, large waves that enter at the base of the blow hole are compressed upwards and cause a large burst of air and water spray to be expelled at the mouth of the Blow Hole. This surge is accompanied with a loud whooshing noise. When there are king tides periodically throughout the year, the Blow Hole is truly spectacular.
Other attractions around the area include walking tracks that wend their way along the cliff edges, gorgeous clean beaches and water sports, a fantastic hinterland of green rolling hills, lots of great shopping, and a delightfully maintained heritage setting of the township of Kiama.
The little accommodation gem Iíd like to tell you about is called Surf Beach Holiday Park and it is situated on the southern end of the Surf Beach.
Surf Beach Holiday Park offers a wide variety of accommodation choices. If you wish to camp, thereís camping space. If you wish to bring your own RV, there are sites available. For us, the variety and choice of onsite accommodation is simply breathtaking and we had a hard time choosing our preferred cabin. The cabins are really luxury cabins and come with many features that help to make your stay so enjoyable.
The most important feature of all the luxury cabins is that they all have a wonderful view from their veranda, no matter which one you choose to stay in. We chose a cabin that is overlooking the Surf Beach area, but still had views out to sea.
Inside the cabins youíll find all you need for your holiday including all the AV equipment like TVís and CD players. The bathroom we had featured a spa. All of the facilities in the cabins were modern and extremely clean and tidy, and a pleasure to just bring your suitcases into and start resting. An onsite resort style swimming pool and games room is available for guests.
When we arrived at the Surf Beach Holiday Park, we had just completed a walking trek and I had quite a lot of washing. The washing machine and drying facilities were great at this Park.
I found the management and staff to be very friendly and helpful, right from the moment we walked into the reception, hoping to get accommodation without prebooking. On asking we received a discount for our RACQ membership (Automobile Association). We paid $160.00 per night and received a $10.00 per night seniorís discount.
We are looking forward to going back to the Surf Beach Holiday Park at Kiama, and can thoroughly recommend a stay at this little gem of a spot.
