Victoria’s newest theme park, Gumbuya World is open just in time for Summer holiday fun!

Dive into Australia’s newest waterpark, OASIS SPRINGS. What’s your pace? 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.
Enjoy Close encounters with furry friends on the WILDLIFE TRAIL. Explore the CRITTER CAVE, or have that perfect snap taken with our lovable KOALAS, DINGOES and other amazing animals. WANDER the beautiful bushland setting spending time with our 52 species of mostly Australian animals and don’t forget the Petting Zoo for all that is cute and cuddly.
Time to dry off and take a spin at OZ ADVENTURE. 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.
Let’s not forget the not so big ones. The OUTBACK EXPLORERS theme park will feature 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.
Gumbuya World is committed to driving the growth of Melbourne’s South-East with the support of the Cardinia Shire Council and Government. The theme park will be a leading local and tourist destination and will continue to evolve through future phases to attract visitors to the South-East from Victoria, Australia and around the World.
Gumbuya World will see a significant rise in employment, with a focus on offering roles to residents in the South-East area and those left affected by the decline in the automotive industry. Gumbuya World plans to grow this to approximately 150 at the time of opening in December 2017 with a target of over 500 employees within 5 years.
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. Gumbuya World is investing in state-of-the-art equipment, training and safety to provide an exceptional guest experience.
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.
