A great venue for Kiama High School’s Year 12 formal. From beginning to end the staff work with us to ensure the event is a memorable one, with beautiful decorations, thoughtful catering and exceptional service. Thank you for a wonderful experience. We’ll be back.

Catherine Glover – Kiama High School

The team at The Pavilion made sure that our day was a huge success. They supported and guided every step of the way. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend The Pavilion, you won’t be sorry.

Michelle Kerridge – Event

Rebecca, you & your team were delightful to work with. Friendly, helpful & professional without us feeling “corporate” or “wedding”. To be able to adjust the tone of your work to “family” & low key for Rod’s birthday is testament to your flexibility & professionalism. I valued your guidance & advice during preparations. We had lovely feedback on all aspects of the night, especially the food. Hope & Jackie, you always made time to help us calmly & patiently, evidence of your professionalism & strong teamwork, too.

Rod & Glenys – 50th Birthday celebration

Fantastic venue, delicious food and wonderful staff. The catering staff and the Pavilion Staff were exceptional. We couldn’t have asked for a better send off for Mum. The location goes without saying. The children played and walked on the beach and everyone commented on the food and the staff. Thank you again for your help at such short notice. We really appreciated it.

Wendy & Kay – Family Event

A most sincere thank you for everything you did to help with our fundraiser – it was lovely dealing with you both and we truly appreciated the efforts you went to to help us out.

Nerida Robinson – Gosh! Advertising & Public Relations

Your professionalism, guidance and energetic demeanour assisted greatly in the success of the awards night. I rely heavily on the external venue staff when developing, producing and delivering the annual State Conference and Awards Night and you certainly didn’t let me down. This year’s Awards night has rated as one of the best from the survey results we have already received.  I know where to come when next in Kiama for the perfect venue!

Bethanie Tobin - Executive Officer – Parks & Leisure Australia (NSW/ACT)

Thank you for the professionalism of the event management of our Professional Development Day. Making yourself available for meetings to confirm details ensured the smooth running on the day. No matter what the request, it was always met with a smile and positivity. It has been a pleasure to work with The Pavilion, once again, on our annual event.

Lisa O'Grady - Program Manager Communities for Children – Barnados Australia

I would thoroughly recommend Kiama Pavilion for any group looking for a fantastic venue for a Year 12 Formal. The event coordinators were professional, informative and always contactable and worked collaboratively with the teacher and students. All guests were well catered for and made to feel at ease and enjoyed a fun night of dance, decorations, good food and not to forget the amazing view. We will definitely be back with our Year 12 cohort next year.

Year Advisor – Kiama High School 2016

We have found the facilities to be well presented and comfortable, the catering has been enjoyable and the brief has been met each time for our events

Michael Phillips - Ryder – Project Director - Fulton Hogan

A modern and clean venue for our monthly auctions, with great facilities and an easy hiring process. Recommended for any type of event.

The Pavilion provides the best location, atmosphere, service and friendly helpful staff.

John Dick – Roman Hot Rods

The Illawarra Folk Club has held the Folk by the Sea Festival at the Kiama Pavilion for the last three years. The Festival has been an outstanding success from its beginning and major factors in this success are the beauty of the Showground site, the facilities available at the Pavilion and the dedication of the Pavilion staff. We intend to continue running this Festival and look forward to utilising this wonderful site.

Rod and Judy Cork – Folk by the Sea

Fantastic venue – well placed between the Shoalhaven and Illawarra, friendly staff and the catering was excellent.


David Bunder – Child, Adolescent & Youth Mental Health

The venue and the staff were excellent an absolute pleasure to work with. Many who attended our event have commented positively about it.
