Gumbuya World expands to include new gigantic slides and family wave pool

Gumbuya World expands to include new gigantic slides and family wave pool
February 25, 2019

Stage two expansion of Victoria’s Gumbuya World will see the theme park’s water world, Oasis Springs almost double in size as it becomes home to the state’s most impressive family wave pool as well as six brand new gigantic waterslides comprising two monster twister slides and thrilling four lane rally race slides.

Only 50 minutes south east of Melbourne, Gumbuya World offers an adventure fit for the whole family with four worlds to explore; Oasis Springs, Oz Adventure, Outback Explorers and Wildlife Trail.

The theme park’s water world, Oasis Springs currently includes the exciting Typhoon Island, epic water slides, a 300 metre Lazy River, heated rock pools and Surf’s Up.

The expansion is part of a major redevelopment of Gumbuya World set to continue over the next three years. The theme park will offer 50 new attractions as well as a range of onsite accommodation, new cafes, shops, a chocolate factory and a microbrewery. It will also include Indigenous, dinosaur and wool shed precincts for educational programs.

Gumbuya World Business Director, Ron Weinzierl commented “we’ve had our busiest summer thanks to the thousands of Victorians and tourists walking through our doors each day over the last two months.

“We received such strong support from the community and our customers since Gumbuya World re-opened in December 2017, and we want to say thank you to everyone who has visited over the last year. We’re looking forward to introducing an even bigger Oasis Springs in time for the Spring school holidays this year."

By 2022, it is anticipated that Gumbuya World will attract a million visitors each year from around Australia and the globe – ensuring tourism remains strong in Victoria and the Gippsland region.

An annual pass ensures access to Gumbuya World all year and consumers are encouraged to purchase their annual passes ready for the newly upgraded Oasis Springs later this year.

Gumbuya World is the vision of a group of Victorian entrepreneurs consisting of Gerry Ryan, Wal Pisciotta, Adam Campbell, Brett Murray, and Ray and Ron Weinzierl, who wanted to reimagine the tourist favourite they enjoyed with their families when they were younger, and create a legacy of fun and imagination for future generations.

Gumbuya World is located at 2705 Princes Highway, Tynong, VIC 3813.
