Question: What happens when you combine a stunning beachside resort less than two hours south of Sydney, a fun-filled action park and a too-good-to-be-true offer at one of Wollongong’s most popular family hotels? 

Answer: Novotel Northbeach’s Jamberoo Summer Family Fun package, of course!

In celebration of the summer and in the spirit of spending quality time as a family, Novotel Northbeach is offering an exceptional deal for an action-packed getaway. Here are the deets.

The Park

If you’re a family of fun-seekers, you’ll love a trip to Jamberoo Action Park over the summer. One of the South Coast’s premier tourist attractions, Jamberoo sits just 20 minutes from Wollongong and is the ultimate destination for thrill-seeking families. 

For the 2018/19 Season, Jamberoo Action Park is serving up a cocktail of tube rides—a trilogy of raft rides that all come with an element of darkness, anticipation and thrills galore. The Funnel Web offers speeds of up to 30km, and you’ll be twisting and turning before entering the spider’s lair; a giant funnel that’ll have your head spinning with excitement; while The Tapian is only for those brave enough to enter the belly of the snake—seeking a high-intensity thrill as your raft twirls you in and out of darkness down a completely tubular waterslide.

Alongside the rides, there’s also Outback Bay; one of the largest wave pools in NSW, Billabong Beach for littlies, a Rapid River for an action-packed adventure and Surf Hill—a speed slide which features a whopping 18-metre drop and wave-like grooves. Needless to say, there’s something for everyone at Jamberoo! 

And if all of that wasn’t enough, there’s also a great variety of eateries, picnic areas and coin-operated BBQ’s, alongside a souvenir shop, surf shack and photobooth. What more could you possibly need? 

The Deal

If the park sounds up your family’s alley, you’ll be happy to know that one of the region’s most popular family hotels, Novotel Northbeach, is putting on a great deal for your next Weekender. From just $399 per room, the package includes overnight accommodation in a standard room, a Jamberoo Action Park Family Pass for four people, a family munchie pack, breakfast for two adults and two children in Windjammers and undercover car parking. All that's left to decide is which ride you'll go on first!

The Hotel

Located right on the idyllic water’s edge and the sweeping sands of North Wollongong Beach, Novotel Northbeach is the perfect spot for your next getaway. The rooms are renowned for their spacious, light-filled design and iconic views, and its location on Wollongong’s Blue Mile precinct make it the ideal pick for families. Local attractions, restaurants, cafes and the CBD are all right on the doorstep, meaning there’s no shortage of things to do—once you’ve recovered from the fun of a day spent at Jamberoo Action Park, of course!
