Gumbuya World Ready for Oasis Springs Expansion, Set to Almost Double In Size

Gumbuya World is a thrilling new destination in Victoria for all ages, and the only site in the state that offers a water, wildlife and theme park in one location.

Tynong , Australia - August 24, 2019 /NewsNetwork/ —

Gumbuya World, a recent addition to the range of water parks Melbourne has on offer, is set to unveil an expansion of its resort. Its aquatic area, Oasis Springs, is primed to open new areas and rides that will double the park’s size. This is part of the park’s second phase of expansion, which brings with it a surfing simulator, 300 metre Lazy River and heated rock pools. The park will also open six new waterslides, including twister style slides and four lane race slides.

Gumbuya World, formerly named Gumbuya Park, was purchased in 2016 for $4.65 million by a group of entrepreneurs from Victoria including Gerry Ryan, Adam Campbell, Wal Pisciotta, Brett Murray, and Ray and Ron Weinzierl. It opened in its current incarnation in September 2017 and the owners stated their ambition to create the “Disneyland of Victoria”. Upon opening, its number of staff jumped from 56 to over 500 and the park is now open to the public all year round, with annual passes also available and entry free for kids under the age of three.

In order to create Melbourne’s most impressive water park, Gumbuya World will become home to Victoria’s most impressive wave pool. Gumbuya World’s expansion is set to continue over the next three years and will see the theme park’s offerings expand via 50 new attractions, onsite accommodation, new spots to eat and shop, and even a chocolate factory and microbrewery. Alongside these attractions, Gumbuya World will open dinosaur, indigenous and wool shed precincts for educational programs.

These upgrades are expected to largely benefit tourism in the Victoria and Gippsland region, as the park is located 50 minutes away by car south east of Melbourne. By 2022 Gumbuya World is expected to attract a million yearly visitors from Australia and abroad. This is a far cry from the park’s original opening as a pheasant farm in 1978, run by an Italian migrant businessman.

Alongside their water park, Gumbuya World also features one of a range of wildlife parks Melbourne residents can visit. The park is home to 300 native animals including dingoes, wombats, koalas, emus and 30 species of birds. Visitors can get up close with animals, hear daily Ranger Talks and even eat lunch close to the Koalas.

Sep 19, 2019

WASHINGTON — U.S. home sales rose 1.3% in August to the highest level in 17 months, as mortgage rates near historic lows have spurred a rush of home-buying. The National Association of Realtors said Thursday that homes sold last month at a seasonally adjusted annualized rate of 5.49 million units, the best performance since March 2018.
