President Peter and Wife Wendi


With my last report as President on the web,go my very best wishes from Members to Peter and his Board for a very successful and enterprising year ahead,- of Service,fun and fellowship for the Club and members.  We are getting the Changeover together as we speak, with programmes, guest lists and table President Russell Fredeicks 2009-2010decorations,etc.. all under some semblance of control.  Having just completed final drafts for our changeover programme, I can say that members can be more than justly proud of what has been achieved this year.  It is of course the time of year for lots of 'thanks you's'. Dozens of members led a committee, or an event, or a function, etc throughout the year. With little exception, our projects, our fun raising and service work were all successful, to the extent that a record amount of dollars was raised through the year from what may well be a record number of hours put in by members, resulting in a record distribution to a wide range of 'causes'.

All Members

We will be keeping this website as long as possible. It is an extra site that informs our many Lions Members around the world what we achieve in Kiama Lions. I will do my best to keep it updated. 


 Herant, McKee and Robson Lion Hemant will be attending the Lions International Convention in Sydney, but after arriving is Sydney he immediately caught a flight to Melbourne, bought a $300 second hand Bicycle, and is now cycling to Sydney via the Princes Highway. He hopes to meet Lions on the way. The Photo: Hemant Agrawal was presented a bannerette by Keith McKee and Kiama Lions David Robson. Lion David Robson will also be attending the International Convention in Sydney.       


                             KIAMA -the location of the famous BLOWHOLE

 The main Kiama Blow Hole was discovered by George Bass on his voyage of coastal exploration on December 6, 1797, after anchoring his whaleboat in the sheltered bay which became Kiama Harbour. 

The shore Bass wrote, showed evidence of considerable volcanic fire and on the point he found: "The earth for a Kiama Blowholeconsiderable distance round in the form approaching a circle seemed to have given way; it was now a green slope.....Towards the centre was a deep ragged hole of about 25 to 30 feet in diameter and on one side of it the sea washed in through a subterraneous passage...with a most tremendous noise..." 

Bass was not, in fact, the first to discover the Kiama Blow Hole, as local Aboriginals had for generations referred to it as Khanterintee

In January 1889 a performer by the name of Charles Jackson attracted large crowds to see his crossings of the mouth of the Blow Hole on a tightrope. 

In more recent times a local newspaper editor caused a furore by reporting that the Public Works Department was going to give the Blowhole a "reline" as it was not working as well as it used to due to erosion. All manner of media coverage & public protests were subsequently arranged for the day which was scheduled for the work to be done, which turned out to be April Fools Day.

Suggestions by visitors disappointed that the Blowhole was not working when they visited, have included the installation of a coin operated pump. A smaller blowhole popularly known as the LITTLE BLOW HOLE is located a few minutes south of the main Blow Hole performs best under moderate seas
