Get ready for an exhilarating family-friendly outing at Jamberoo Action Park.
Jamberoo Action Park is NSW’s largest family-owned and operated water theme park – impressive stuff.
Back in the 70s, this rolling hillside property was a dairy farm but soon enough the land was no longer viable for agricultural purposes. Enter, the legendary Eddy family who stepped in to create a green ski field (of all things). Nowadays it has evolved into the Jamberoo Action Park.
Think fun waterslides, stacks of world-class rides, plenty of healthy eats and a few sneaky treats. They’re open from mid-September for the summer months so if you’re in the Kiama area, get your tickets and make a full day of it.
Jamberoo Action Park rides
Choosing which ride to go on first will be your only problem (and we use that word loosely) here. The Perfect Storm is one of the tallest, longest and most thrilling water rides of its kind on the planet. It’s a super fun vortex of whirling water where zero gravity regularly takes control – hang on tight.

Surf Hill is a classic speed slide with an 18-metre drop. Line up, watch the lights and get ready to zoom. Be sure to check the scoreboard to see who won. Go ahead and challenge your friends and family to a speed slide race, it’s loads of fun for everyone.

The Bobsled ride at Jamberoo Action Park is always a winner if you want a fun adrenaline fix. Inspired by traditional alpine runs, the two tracks that stretch for almost a kilometre, wind their way through the mountains and trees. Talk about taking the fastest scenic route.

Challenge yourself and take the five-metre drop into a five-metre-deep pool in a supremely pretty rockpool setting, complete with shimmering blue hues. It’s beautiful, but the height can make this leap a little scary too. Use the three-metre drop to build up courage if you need it.

These are just a few of the highlights, other popular fun zones include the family-friendly Banjo’s Billabong, rafting on Rapid River and Outback Bay wave pool.
