Starting from the end of Elanora Road, Kiama Heights, Kiama Coast Walk South Track spans from Loves Bay to Werri Beach and showcases the natural beauty and cultural significance of the region. This is the third of the three sections of Kiama Coastal Walk. Begin your journey at the serene Loves Bay, where tranquillity embraces you amidst the scenic coastal backdrop. Along the trail, you'll encounter the Aboriginal Dreaming Poles, crafted by artists Stephen Russell and Phyllis Stewart, which offer a glimpse into the rich indigenous heritage of the area. As you continue, Kiama Heights unveils panoramic vistas of the coastline, providing a breathtaking perspective of the surrounding landscapes. The trail also leads you to the expansive shores of Werri Beach, where the crashing waves beckon surfers and beachgoers alike. Marvel at the majestic Illawarra Escarpment, an ancient geological formation that adds a dramatic touch to the landscape. The walk features Werri Lagoon as well, a picturesque waterway where the natural beauty of the area truly shines. Let us begin by acknowledging the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
