Jamberoo Valley is full of nature reserves and national parks and has a quiet, little village called Jamberoo located in the valley. The village is about 11 km inland from Kiama on the South Coast of New South Wales. From Sydney, it is a total driving distance of about 125 kms and takes about 2 hrs to reach Jamberoo. It is famous for the Jamberoo Action Park, Jamberoo Hotel (Pub) and the local dairy-farming community. The Jamberoo Action Park is NSW's favourite water theme park and makes a great outing for families and friends.
I was doing a road trip with another friend in NSW and Jamberoo was our last stop. On our 10 day road trip, we had driven through Blue Mountains, Capertee, Mudgee, Quirindi and Charlestown in the Central and North Coast of NSW, and then Kiama, Wollongong, Jervis Bay, Macquarie Pass and Southern Highlands on the South Coast of NSW. Even though it had been raining heavily during the last part of our trip, it cleared out the day we visited Jamberoo.
The Saddleback Mountain is located near Kiama in New South Wales, Australia. The mountain rises to about 600 mts. above sea level and the Saddleback Mountain Lookout offers stunning views of the Illawarra region. The Saddleback Mountain Lookout is close to the village of Jamberoo. About 2 km east of Jamberoo, Fountaindale Road branches off to the south and the lookout is along this route. There is a signpost guiding you to the lookout. You will eventually reach a T junction. On the left of the junction, the road goes to Kiama and on the right to the lookout. The lookout point is open daily from 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. It offers stunning views of the south coast including Wollongong, Jervis Bay as well as Jamberoo and the Kangaroo Valley.
