When you think of Wollongong, the beach usually springs to mind, however the city offers plenty of other activities.

Jamberoo Water Park offers a chance to cool off in this hot weather with rides and activities to please all age groups. For an adrenalin rush, the Funnel Web cannot be missed. The ride combines speed, twists, darkness and zero gravity moments for a truly exhilarating ride.
