Long Description:
The Blowhole Point Rock Pool at Kiama is situated on the north side of Blowhole Point with access from the harbour road, below the lighthouse.

There is ample parking and there are amenities and change rooms on site.

The pool is irregular in shape with variable depth and natural rock floor. A shallow wading area suitable for very young children is also available.

In summer, the pool is drained and cleaned frequently. During cleaning, algae growth on the wall and floors is killed through the use of a mild chlorine solution. Seaweed build-up is also removed if present. Cleaning can only occur when the tide is predicted to be low during daytime work hours and when this occurs, warning signs are placed around the pool and on access pathways. The pool is normally filled through natural wave tidal action.

Being a tidal pool open to the ocean, it is subject to the same hazards and marine creatures that are common to natural rock shelves with the result that wave action may introduce marine stingers and other creatures into the pool. During periods of high seas large waves may enter the pool making it unsafe for swimming.
