Back in 1978, the park was originally farmland. Later, this quaint farm was converted into a small wildlife park and opened to the public. By 1981, the Greenleaf restaurant was built on site. In 2017, the park was renovated to bring the park into the 21st century!
This perfect family outing spot has something unique for everyone. Gumbuya World consists of a number of ‘worlds’, each with its own unique twist. ‘Oasis Springs’ is where you will find fun waterslides, lazy river and Typhoon Island. ‘Oz Adventure’ has a fun roller coaster, tree swing and a trackless train. “Outback Explorers” is perfect for little kids with a range of rides for younger kids including dodgem cars and pirate ship. The “Wildlife Trail” will bring you up close and personal with koalas and dingoes and visitors will also be able to walk through a huge aviary and pat some animals in the petting zoo.
