The Kiama Local Government area (map) covers an area of 259 square kilometres and sits on the national transport corridor which links Sydney (2 hours by car) and Canberra (2.5 hours by car). We are a short 90-minute drive to Sydney's International Airport and a 40-minute drive to the deep working harbour at Port Kembla. We benefit from having the world-class University of Wollongong on our doorstep.
We have a unique landscape which embraces pristine beaches, rainforests and open rural vistas. We have significant environmental features including extensive rainforest areas, National Parks, plateau and escarpment, lush valleys and coastal estuaries and wetlands.
The Kiama LGA’s vast physical expanse provides an abundance of land suitable for agricultural purposes. Many investors are taking advantage of the area’s temperate climate and rich agricultural soils to pursue new and innovative agricultural activities. Our strong economy is driven by a work-ready, highly skilled and educated workforce. Kiama has grown to encompass internationally-focussed service industries and first-class tourism facilities.
