Victoria’s newest theme park, Gumbuya World is open just in time for Summer holiday fun! Located in Melbourne’s South-East. The first phase unveiled the highly anticipated Oasis Springs water park, Wildlife Trail and the Oz Adventure and Outback Explorer worlds, with further phases to open throughout 2018.
OASIS SPRINGS: Experiencing sheer drops and thrills on the Taipan and Boomerango, ride the waves at Surfs Up or just soak up the rays on the Lazy River.
WILDLIFE TRAIL: Enjoy close encounters with furry friends like koalas, dingoes and other animals. Wander the beautiful bushland setting spending time with 52 species of mostly Australian animals and don’t forget the Petting Zoo for all that is cute and cuddly.
OZ ADVENTURE: Time to dry off and take a spin – hold on tight as you ride the Mining Race Coaster. Or buckle up as you are launched into the air on Rush Hour then strap in to be swung high and fast on the giant Tree Swing.
OUTBACK EXPLORERS: Let’s not forget the not so big ones, featuring a host of rides including the Berry Twirl and the Outback Pirate Ship.
Acquired in September 2016, Gumbuya World is the vision of a group of Victorian entrepreneurs consisting of Gerry Ryan, Wal Pisciotta, Adam Campbell, Brett Murray, Ray and Ron Weinzierl to reimagine a place that they enjoyed with their families when they were younger and to leave a legacy for future generations.
Phase two of the park is planned to open in mid-2018 and will include an Indigenous cultural centre, Walking with Dinosaurs exhibit, a 400-seat auditorium and a host of new rides and attractions and will also offer special events, corporate conference facilities and educational programs. Future stages of the development will include attractions such as a retail village, Eco Bush Resort, chocolate factory and a microbrewery.
Whether it’s spending endless hours in the water park, getting up-close and personal with wildlife or enjoying the rides and attractions, Gumbuya World has something for everyone.
