The rockpools at Black Beach are teeming with life and diversity that will spark curiosity and wonder for all ages. The black basalt sands along the beach are also a fascination and Kiama Harbour is home to several giant stingrays and pelicans that love to pay a visit when the fishers bring in their catch. If you are lucky enough to catch a south east wind then the blowhole will not disappoint, nor will the migrating humpback whales between May and June or returning September to November.
Tides will determine whether the day starts or finishes at the rockpools. Check with IEEC for arrival and departure points.
