Jamberoo Theme Park…

by on Jan.10, 2013, under Life, Photography

Took the girls to Jamberoo Theme Park (our first time) on a nice summers day – sunny and warm but not too hot with a little breeze. Jamberoo is located near Kiama on the South Coast of NSW (about 90 min drive south of Sydney).

I’ve long known about this place (in fact I’m sure I have been when I was a child) but this was the first time I’ve been with my children and I’ve got to say that it really was a great place. It’s not as flashy (and sterile) as the Gold Coast Theme parks and it has more of a family feel about the place. What it does have is lots of areas for families to have a picnic (lots of grassed areas and lots of trees along with covered seating areas as well as outdoor tables and gas bbq’s). There is food available and it’s actually not too exorbitant. There were quite a number of rides for the children – the majority of them focused around water activities (slides, pools, rivers and so on) so if you do go – swimmers are a must. There were queues for the major rides (not as bad as on the Gold Coast) but they moved quite rapidly for most of the rides. I reckon the only thing they could do to improve would be to have more toilet facilities around the park (they are pretty clustered in just one area).
