The biggest attractions for visiting the South Coast don’t lose their appeal just because winter is here. In fact, some of the most exciting events of the calendar year take place in Winter, making our Kiama beachside apartment the ideal destination for a luxury South Coast getaway any and every time of year.
Whether you’re wanting to admire the rolling green hills of the region from atop a mountainous lookout or from the lawn of a local winery, you can do both when you book a holiday at Oceanview beachfront accommodation Kiama.
From the beachside to the bar and everything in between, here’s your must-see guide of how to make the most of your winter holiday in Kiama.
Whale Watch around Kiama
Whales truly are captivating and they’re putting on a show all Winter. The annual Whale migration along the east coast is one of the biggest mammal migrations on the globe, and there are many ways you can enjoy the majesty of these incredible creatures.
If you’re keen to see the whales as close as possible, book a whale watching tour in Jervis Bay and swing by Huskisson Pub or Jervis Bay Brewing co for a drink and some dinner while you’re debriefing after your (most likely amazing) day.
Taste Your Way Through Local Boutique Wineries & Craft Breweries
The Shoalhaven coast is unique for its sandy soil and salty air, and while there isn’t a huge quantity of wineries in the region, the quality of wine produced is outstanding. Put together exceptional small batch boutique wines, stunning landscapes and relaxed yet attentive, south coast hospitality and you’ve got a memorable, entertaining day full of local culture – exactly what you want on a winter beachside holiday!
There aren’t too many places in the world where you can enjoy award winning wines overlooking rolling green hills before heading home to an endless view of the ocean from your luxury south coast accommodation. Sounds like the perfect balance between country and coast if you ask us!

Enjoy Jazz In The Winter Sun with Sunday Park Sessions
There’s something inherently good for the soul when you can lie in the winter’s sun and soak in some glorious live music at the same time. On the first Sunday of every month, Sunday Park Sessions keep the good vibes rolling in Kiama with a free live Jazz event.
