About Jamberoo

A delightful little village full of history, Jamberoo is surrounded by emerald green pastures and set against the forested cliffs of the escarpment. Minnamurra Rainforest and Barren Grounds Bird Observatory and Nature Reserve, two of the State's natural treasures, are both close to Jamberoo. To the west is Budderoo National Park, another wild jewel.

Jamberoo was established in 1820, originally to harvest the rich cedar forests that built much of colonial Sydney. By the 1830s, it was a thriving village at the centre of a rich dairy area; today, the town retains much of its historic character. Explore the historic churches and poke around in Fredericks General Store.

Bend an elbow with the locals at the Jamberoo Pub on Sunday afternoon, when bush bands perform or head to town for the monthly Jamberoo Arts and Craft Fair. Held on the last Sunday of every month, the fair offers fresh local produce, preserves, crafts and live entertainment.

Nearby, there are some great things to do with the whole family. Go wild at Jamberoo Action Park, an action-packed family adventure playground, or follow the boardwalk at Minnamurra Rainforest and marvel at the tangled subtropical rainforest. The town is also within easy reach of the surf beaches around Kiama.
