Less than a two hour drive south of Sydney, Jamberoo is indeed a place of outstanding beauty. The valley of rich pasturelands is located a ten minute drive from a selection of beautiful beaches in one direction, a ten minute drive in the other to native rainforests. Established in 1820 to harvest the rich cedar forests that built much of colonial Sydney, Jamberoo is renowned for being some of Australia’s best dairy farming country and is also the home of Australia’s first cooperative dairy. The original Aboriginal people of this area are known to be of the Wadi Wadi tribe, and Yuiu tribe. Traditional stories say the Dharawal people brought the Dharawal (cabbage tree palm) with them on arrival at Lake Illawarra, back when their ancestors were animals. Possible meanings in the local Aboriginal language for Jamberoo are "track or meeting place".
