Guide to Kiama, Gerringong and Gerroa
By Penny Parsons

Only an hour and a half drive south of Sydney brings you to Kiama, Gerroa and Gerringong, an area of lush green pastures, spectacular cliffs along the seaside and almost a dozen fabulous beaches.   Kiama is a vibrant and historic town with many landmark buildings and is a great spot to wander for the day or to catch a bite to eat.   Top 5 things to do and see   Minnamurra Rainforest The Minnamurra Rainforest is near Jamberoo, around 15 minutes drive from Kiama.

Review - Kiama Eureka Beach House
By Michelle Kothe

33 Eureka Avenue Kiama Downs NSW   This is a suburban house, but with huge living areas and wonderful views.

Review - Seabreeze Thirroul
By Lisa Monk

The glorious south coast of NSW is a treasure trove of things to see and do, with a sparkling array of white beaches, the emerald green hinterland and myriad small towns and villages full of great shops, restaurants and links to our rural past.   What is the best way to see it all?  How about staying in a wonderful place like Thirroul and using it as your base to explore all that the region offers.
