Limited slides but great location and not too bad for a city such as Canberra that has a shortish summer season. Could be a little more friendly on the wallet but I guess they have to make a profit in the short season they have.

We went to Big Splash for the first time and were pleasantly surprised by the range of facilities on offer. It has a great selection of swimming pools of varying depths and a wonderful kids play area with waterslides and other water activities. Our kids (aged 4 and 2) absolutely loved it! As they are very young, we didn't use... More

We enjoyed our day out at Big Splash. There are 6 big water slides of varying speeds, plus a good baby pool with a little slide, and a little kid pool with half-sized water slides - good for primary aged children. There is a full sized swimming pool and a small family pool adjoining. There's lots of shade to sit... More

Having just spent a day at Jamberoo Water Park last week, I can honestly say Big Splash was better value for money, unlike Jamberoo if you don't want to use the water slides you don't pay for them, it's $27 for the water slides all day and believe me our 14 year old son had lost count how many times...

Nice venue for a family day out - if you are expecting wet and wild theme park experience then you are not going to get it - more like a pool with some good slides as side entertainment. Inflatable play ground in main pool was enjoyed as well.

I honestly do not understand why this is so far down the list. It is a fantastic attraction and very well-priced.

We spend a few hours here, our 10yo daughter loved it. There are plenty of shady areas to sit, lots of tables and chairs (you can bring your own chairs but they have some there) and lots of water slides for the kids.

Our 7 year old loved this place. Main pool not heated. We felt it was rather tired. Poor choice of food in the cafe, rubbish bins overflowing, toilets with non locking doors, no way of drying your hands. But ..... nice shady area to sit (we took our own chairs but there were some available), different activities for different age... More
