Gumbuya Park has had a $50 million facelift and rebranded as Gumbuya World – and there is a lot more fun to be had. Gumbuya World comprises four discrete areas: Oasis Springs, Wildlife Trail, Oz Adventures and Outback Explorers. The Oasis Springs water park features fast slides with steep drops and exciting twists and turns. For a walk on the wilder side, there is the Wildlife Trail, with more than 50 animal species to see. Visitors can hand-feed kangaroos, wallabies and emus, and there are also two new young koalas in the park. Little ones can get up close and personal at the petting zoo, where they can pat lambs, ducks and baby goats. Oz Adventure is a rides section for everyone, and Outback Explorers comprises rides for smaller visitors. Gumbuya World is open every single day except Christmas Day.
What's in it for you
You are never too old for a waterslide, or if you would rather a slower pace, the Lazy River might be for you. If you'd rather stay dry, enjoy seeing the native wildlife – you can even have a cuddle.
