A $3 million NSW Government project to install a new seawall and waterside walk has been completed improving the safety, accessibility and appearance of Kiama Harbour.

Crown Lands Executive Director of Land and Asset Management Greg Sullivan said the upgraded harbourfront is now open for use by locals and visitors to the town.

“The new seawall and waterside walk are a substantial improvement for the harbour and an investment in the future of Kiama as one of the South Coast’s favourite destinations,” Mr Sullivan said.

“The seawall provides stronger protection against storms to safeguard Black Beach Reserve and Kiama Harbour Park while connecting people to local attractions like the rockpool and blowhole.”

The Kiama Harbour project, funded by Crown Lands, involved construction of a new seawall, an adjacent accessible footpath and ramp, new street furniture and a seating area, stainless steel handrails and balustrades, and landscaping.

The concrete seawall has an embedded pattern of a whale based on artwork that was commissioned with Illawarra Local Aboriginal Land Council.

A nearby boat ramp and trailer parking area have also been retained.
