Kiama

Additional Information

 Kiama is a well-known and popular coastal resort town known, around Australia, for the famous Kiama Blowhole, a cavern-like fissure in the volcanic rocks which produces dramatic 'blows' of water when the winds and waves are in the right direction. In recent times Kiama has become a popular daytripper destination for people from Greater Wollongong (which lies just to the north) and southern and south-western Sydney. Consequently the town is now awash with coffee lounges and fast food outlets although the council has resisted any high rise development. In many ways Kiama still maintains the charm of an historic seaside town with a small boat harbour. When the onshore breezes are blowing there is the tang of salt spray. Large areas beside the coast have been set aside as parkland suitable for picnics and family activities and there are pleasant walking paths along the coastline. The hinterland behind the town is dominated by lush green dairy pastures, and rolling hills which were once clad in dense subtropical forests.

Kokoda

Kokoda Track Memorial Walkway

 The Kokoda Track Memorial Walkway is a living memorial and a principal site of commemoration honouring all those who fought for Australia during World War II.

A principal focus is on the sacrifices made during key Papua New Guinea battles which took place in 1942-43 along the Kokoda Track, at Milne Bay on the south-eastern tip of Papua, and at Buna, Gona, and Sanananda on the northern coastline.

The Walkway covers more than 800 metres from Rhodes Station to Concord Hospital in Sydney’s inner-west, and runs along the mangrove-studded shores of Brays Bay on the Parramatta River.

At the centrepiece are magnificent granite walls bearing photographic images of the Kokoda campaign. There are 22 audio-visual stations along the Walkway, each describing a significant place or military engagement. The Walkway has been planted with lush tropical vegetation simulating the conditions of The Kokoda Track.
