Jamberoo Get directions Dee Kramer

You see, it’s easy to be lulled into blissful relaxation by the undulating landscape, quiet rural lanes and silent rainforests. But don’t let those sleepy Illawarra Shorthorn cows fool you… this is also a great place to get your adventure fix!

From the rainforest-clad escarpment, you’ll take in stunning panoramic views north across the region at a treetop walk like no other. The Illawarra Fly’s collection of walkways, cantilevers and towers see native bush peel back to reveal breathtaking camera-friendly vistas. Or if it’s real flying you’re after, Australia’s highest zipline tour will have you soaring through the trees – safely rocketing you through this spectacular forest setting.

A little closer to sea level, Minnamurra Rainforest is a lush reminder of what this entire region looked like some 200 years ago and features an accessible-friendly loop track. Meanwhile, just up the road, you might be surprised to find NSW’s favourite water theme park. In the summer months Jamberoo Action Park dishes up a friendly mix of world-class thrill rides & slides, lazy rivers, wave pools, mini golf, refreshments and much more.

At the centre of all this of course is the undeniably picturesque village of Jamberoo – its pub a gathering place, waterhole and museum for visitors and locals alike. This is a town where music festivals ring out through the valley, where classic vehicle enthusiasts ride alongside lycra-clad cyclists, and where the traffic always gives way to the cattle…
