One of the South Coast's beautiful and tranquil valley escapes is unspoilt Jamberoo Valley where lush green pastures follow the Minnamurra River to where it drops from the highlands into the quiet of the Budderoo National Park rain forest at Minnamurra Falls. The valley is reached from Albion Park and Kiama on the coast or via Jamberoo Pass (not for buses or caravans) from Robertson in the highlands. Regardless of how you enter, your journey into the valley is via sealed roads which follow the original tracks and reveal spectacular views one would normally travel great distances to see.
Spectacular views are the introduction, but the overall beauty of nature's architecture assures Jamberoo of a special place in the memory of all who venture here. Its domain of verdant greenery, rainforest and shady creeks crowned by the famous Minnamurra Falls are surprisingly complemented by the grace and charm of the village itself.
The village of Jamberoo with its friendly Bowling and Golf Clubs, historic 'pub', antique shops, cafe, specialty shops and general store, like the valley, is unspoilt and just waiting to be explored. This is the ideal base from which to visit the National Parks, the Barren Grounds Bird Observatory Nature Centre and the Illawarra Fly Treetop Walk.
For fun and excitement there is Jamberoo Action Park - NSW's favourite water theme park … Home of the Funnel Web, one of the biggest, longest, most exhilarating water thrill rides built of its kind in the world! Or why not enjoy Banjo’s Billabong... a spectacular four storey, Australiana themed interactive aqua play structure crowned by not one but two huge water buckets, that tip 1800 litres of water over the structure every few minutes. Why not “Get bitten by The Taipan” or splash about in one of NSW’s largest wave pools, enjoy speed slides, rock jumps, the famous mountain toboggans and Chairlift and so much more. Set off for a day of adventure and exploration at Jamberoo.
