#2 of 16 in Theme Parks in New South Wales
For inland watery fun and excitement, head to Jamberoo Action Park. The biggest theme park in New South Wales offers 40 hectares (99 acres) of water slides, airborne attractions, and landscaped gardens. Take a thrilling 18 m (59 ft) plunge down the Surf Hill waterslide, splash around in waves up to 1.5 m (5 ft) high in Outback Bay, and race down the Bobsled alpine slide. You can also relax by Billabong Beach or aboard the Chairlift. Shady picnic areas provide comfortable places to enjoy lunch if you choose to bring your own. Try to arrive early if you visit during the Australian summer as midday lines to enter can be long.

  • Our third time in as many years. Great day out. We are from Canberra and it's easily drive able in a day ( Kiama is close by for a good overnight option though). Great park, lots of fun, reasonably pr...  more »
  • We took our 8 year old grandson and had a good time. Most (but not all) of the activities are water based so you need to enjoy the water to really enjoy the park. We do !! Two really good points: 1. T...  more »
  • Rides are out of date, lifeguards are overzealous and take the fun out of what little you can do. Made a complaint and then received a fabricated complaint back in response. Not worth the trip given t...  more »

  • The attractions are first class, the grounds are well maintained and offer a lot of open grass areas. The young Life Guard I met at the wave pool was very mature and genuinely interested in my opinion of the park, a real pleasure to talk with. BUT there is a great need for some basic improvements, things that I find hard to understand why are not already part of the mix and should be seriously considered if the management is genuine about wanting the park to be enjoyable for everyone and more than just a money making machine. 1. Why charge such an exorbitant admission fee for seniors or parents who have no intention of partaking of any of the attractions and are just wanting to take their grand children / children to the park for the day and watch over them. By way of comparison Luna Park has no admission fee for non riders and provide continuous free street entertainment throughout the day for the entertainment of all visitors, at Jamberoo, nothing just over priced food & drink. 2. At no time were we given or offered a park map, once in the the park there was very little, almost no signage giving detailed directions to the various park attractions. At key intersections an illustrated park map showing “you are here” and the distance from that point to each attraction would of been of great assistance in enabling for a more enjoyable and full day. 3. Excluding limited seating within the picnic areas, which are situated a distance from the parks attractions with virtually no vision of any of the rides there were virtually no seating anywhere else throughout the park. As a parent or guardian wanting / needing to be at each attraction to either watch or administer children to be able to sit while waiting / watching within shaded areas I would of expected to of been a basic facility and was shocked there wasn’t any. Having to stand hour after hour in full Sun, with no shade available was very stressful and dangerous to the well being of everyone especially older folk like ourselves. Due to the stress of having to stand in the Sun continually caused us to cut short our stay. In closing Jamberoo Action Park despite very good quality attractions and surroundings was very disappointing as far as visitor comfort and non rider admission pricing. It is because of these issues I've only rated the park 2 stars, we will never be returning and will actively discourage others from visiting. I really do hope the management take note of the issues I’ve raised and address the problems, but I won’t be holding my breath !
  • I Love coming here, the kids love it, the teens love it, there is something to keep everyone happy. Reasonably priced throughout, loads of picnic areas AND you can bring your own food. Well worth travelling down for. Best value for money water park.
  • Best water park in Australia I would have to say. Free parking, cheap entry, friendly staff, amazing rides, fun for kids, cheap food and snacks, swimmers and clothes shop, huge waves, safe chairlift, cool toboggans and cheap big lockers to hide your stuff. Everything here is just outstanding and amazing. I love coming here every summer with family and friends. The kids love it here, it’s good for every age since it has an adult pool and Baby/toddler pool. The rides are so much fun especially the new one The Perfect storm (won’t recommend that for little kids as it could be scary to them. So much fun and enjoyed my time here heaps!!!
  • We had an absolute blast here. Reading some of the previous reviews made us worry as to what expect. As a family day out we all had fun and made some fantastic memories. Worth every cent. Will be back next summer for sure
  • Hadn't been back here since a child and it brought a lot of good memories rushing back. This is a great family water park that has plenty of room to get around or lounge about. Prepare to do some uphill walking as the park is all hilly but otherwise this is a great day out and can be topped off with the old faithful toboggan ride with a nice view of the park as you go up.
