Hectare upon hectare of rolling green pastures and idyllic hinterlands against a backdrop of powerful mountains is the postcard-perfect image that greets you when visiting Jamberoo.
Located 15 kilometres inland from Kiama and 110 kilometres south of Sydney, the historic township of Jamberoo is one of the most popular weekend getaways along Sydney’s stunning south coast. Established in the early 19th century by pioneer settlers and first used by cedar-cutters for its abundance of valuable timber, Jamberoo still maintains much of its historical lineage with its charming period buildings and dry stone walls that border many of the town’s farmlands.
The quaint rural village may be small but serves up local attractions in scores for the thousands of visitors who pop in for a visit year after year. Stunning scenery, samplings of fresh local produce, treetop walking experiences, and a yarn with the locals is what’s on the agenda when visiting Jamberoo.
Once you’ve got your share of stunning landscape views, head into town and visit the historic Jamberoo Pub for a feed, a draught and a song or two from one of the local bush bands. If you’re visiting on the last Sunday of the month, don’t forget to stop in at the treasured Jamberoo Arts and Craft Fair. And whatever you do, don’t miss an opportunity to test your adrenalin at the famed Jamberoo Action Park, whether you’re visiting with the kids or not.
With so many attractions on offer, the easiest way to take in the best of Jamberoo is on the award-winning Illawarra Fly Treetop Walk that offers stunning panoramic views of the region.
