Meet Our

Team

Of all the many things we offer at The Pavilion Kiama, the most valuable is our people. We understand that there are lots of things to consider when planning an event, which is why our number one focus is always on providing you with everything you need to create the perfect occasion. We approach every new event completely from scratch – giving you a blank canvas to build each element to suit – from room selection and layout to catering choices, entertainment, decoration, accommodation, extra activities and so much more. Our team are experts in the local area, being part of the Destination Kiama team, an initiative of Kiama Municipal Council. We look forward to assisting you very soon!
