Jamberoo

A picturesque village, Jamberoo is in the beautiful hinterland of the Kiama region on the NSW South Coast. You’ll be delighted and thrilled with the attractions, from a giant waterslide and soaring zip-line to the rainforest splendour of Budderoo National Park and the magnificent Carrington Falls.

Getting to Jamberoo is easy. The scenic drive northwest from Kiama is about 10 minutes and only 30 minutes southwest from Wollongong and less than two hours southwest from Sydney. A number of 19th century buildings are in the village, which traces its colonial history back to cedar cutters.

Stop for a drink and hearty meal in Jamberoo Pub, established in 1857. Places to stay include the inn and the lovingly restored colonial buildings Terragong 1858 and The Belltower, a former church built in 1875. On the last Sunday of the month is the Jamberoo Arts and Craft Fair, a delightful market.

One of the exciting things to do is visit Jamberoo Action Park, north of the village. Enjoy multi-storey water rides such as the Funnel Web and speed down a mountain on a toboggan. Another adventure near the village is soaring on Australia’s highest zip-line at the Illawarra Fly Treetop Adventures.
