Walked from Minnamurra to Bombo and saw some spectacular views, rocks and beaches. The official path doesn't do much though - it tends to stick to highways and car parks, avoids the best parts of headlands, is interrupted by greedy people taking over the coastline, and allows bicycles. I enjoyed it more by avoiding the path wherever possible, e.g., out to Minnamurra Headland, down in front of the houses through wildflowers and rocks to Jones Beach, across Jones Beach, if the tide's low enough you might get across the rocks to Cathedral Rocks, then across Boneyard Beach to Bombo Headland and across Bombo Beach rather than walking along the busy highway.

To call the northern part of this walk a “coast walk” is to call a donkey a racehorse. It passes mainly through suburbia, along a railway line and beside a motorway. The best view is of the sewerage works. What a waste of a morning!

I loved the parts of this walk that I did during my two-night stay in Kiama. However, some sections were difficult to discern and could have been enhanced by better signage. I don't know if there is a detailed map available, as I only had the town guide book with an outline of the whole walk ... a detailed map would be great.

You’ve seen one headland, you’ve seen them all. Honestly after about 3km I was bored with the cross-country reminiscent track. The cows eating along the fence line were good, but I wouldn’t do it again. There’s also few shaded areas, so sunscreen up!!

We didn't do the entire walk but completed a few sections which were very good. The walk mainly sticks to the coast and across the headlands and is generally well maintained and signed. We found a few areas where the signage was lacking and we were not sure where to go but friendly locals were able to steer us in the right direction

Done the Kiama coastal walk over two days.
Spectacular views all the way, my favourite spot was Bombo Headland and Loves bay to Weeri creek.
Undulating most of the time but the views make up for that.
Was lucky enough to have a big swell on the days we walked which made it even better for getting that great picture.

As a keen bush walker, the Kiama coastal walk has been on my to-do list for some time. I completed it over two days - walking from Gerringong to Kiama on day one and onward to Minnamurra on day two. In all, a very enjoyable walk - the first section along the clifftops being the highlight. More details should you wish....

Firstly, in terms of gradient - it’s officially “moderate” but having walked the entire coastline from Palm Beach to Cronulla, the RNP and many of the bushland walks in the Greater Sydney & Blue Mountains I’d rate it as hard (I’m a late 30s active male). Day one was almost 100 flights of stairs and day two almost 50. The first and second stretch are predominantly grassy / unsealed paths and beach, with lots of ascending and descending, with the majority of the third stretch being a mix of sealed and unsealed.

Arriving in Gerringong by train, it took me around 40 mins to reach the start of the first section (at the northern end of Werri Beach). This stretch takes you along cliff tops and beaches of a stunning volcanic coastline to Love Beach. Whilst the weather was drizzly it was still stunning. I didn’t pass a single person on route. This was my favourite stretch. Duration just over 1 hour.

The second section was along more residential coastline, from Love Beach to Kiama blowhole. Duration around 1.5 hours.

The third section from Kiama to Minnamurra took just over 1.5 hours - with a detour to “Boneyard Beach” but not the broader Bombo Headland (as there’s a sewage plant nearby the area isn’t particularly pleasant to your nostrils). Whilst the view from Minnamurra Lookout and of Cathedral Rocks is stunning, the rest of the walk was less interesting than the first day.

The path is generally well signed, and there’s lots of information plaques en route informing you of the geology, historical points of interest and of wildlife.

A final point of note, there were a lot of magpies - a lot - particularly on the first section. Thankfully they weren’t swooping as their young had hatched, but I wouldn’t recommend the walk in peak magpie nesting season.

What a beautiful walk. Took us 3 hours from Kiama to Werri Beach. A little challenging (steep) in parts but spectacular scenery. When we got to Werri Beach we happened to spot a public bus, so for $5 each took the bus back to Kiama. What a wonderful 1/2 day.

There are big waves here crashing on dangerous rocks. If you are not careful, you might get swept out to the sea.
