An impressive list of lookouts across Kiama & beyond
Kiama is home to spectacular nature and man-made beauty, making it the perfect day trip and city escape. It is also home to some of the most impressive lookouts in the Shoalhaven/ South Coast region.
The list below features the best lookouts across Kiama.
1. Saddleback Mountain Lookout
Nestled in the mountains, following the winding roads through the countryside, this lookout is a photographer's dream! Saddleback Mountain Lookout offers breathtaking views that reach to Cronulla to Milton. The views include both coast and country and a picnic up on the viewing platform is unbeatable! The lookout is located a 10-minute drive from the iconic Kiama Blowholes. Click here for the website.
Located on the summit of Saddleback Mountain, Rotary Lookout is the sister lookout to Saddleback Mountain Lookout. It is situated next Saddleback Mountain Lookout near the toilet block. The views from the lookout showcase a beautiful lush nature reserve to the west and on an unobstructed day, views can reach as far as Pigeon House Mountain, located well to the south behind Ulladulla. Views also include the coastal plain of the Shoalhaven region, hinterlands, Seven Mile National Park, Barren Grounds Nature Reserve, Mt Coolangatta and Jervis Bay.
3. Sir Charles Kingsford Smith Memorial & Seven Mile Beach National Park Lookout
This lookout is home to a fascinating past; It is home to where the historical record of Sir Charles Kingsford Smith broke flight on 11th January 1933 across the Tasman to New Zealand, and the Memorial is in the shape of Sir Charles Kingsford Smith's famous aircraft called 'Southern Cross'. Seven Mile Beach National Park and the mighty beautiful views of the coastline can both be seen from the lookout. Click here for the website.
Hence its name, this pleasant lookout comes into sight after winding your way through the Kiama Bends. The lookout offers magnificent coastal and countryside views, as it welcomes Gerringong and the south. It is a magical spot to enjoy a picnic before hitting the highway again or stretch your legs taking in the awe-inspiring views of where valleys and mountains meet the sea. Click here for the website.
