Jamberoo Action Park is a water park and small theme park at Jamberoo, New South Wales.

History[edit]

The first stage of Jamberoo Recreation Park was completed in time for the staging of the 1980 Australian Grass Ski Titles.

Grass skiing received heightened attention in Australia when Jambaroo hosted the World Titles, 21–22 May in 1983. The championships were contested by teams from Italy, France, Switzerland, Germany, Austria, England, the US, and a large contingent of Australian racers. Over time grass skiing, being physically demanding and challenging, gave way to the more passive recreational pursuits now featured at the park.

In 2006, the name of the park was changed from "Jamberoo Recreation Park" to "Jamberoo Action Park".
