We stayed at this camp site on our way down the Great Ocean Road and it was well-equipted for our needs. There was also lots of wildlife, well behaved birds like parrots and cockatoos, cuddly Koalas in the trees and we took a night drive to see glow worms a very short distance. An excellent stay and we would recommend...

a good road to check the koalas and get to know the lookout of apollo bay ;) I got to see many cute baby koalas. Don t spend your money in the lighthouse. 20 dollares for something that you can go by yourself.

Spent 1 week at Kennett River Holiday Park. Was lovely and quiet, beach across the road, a river to fish from and lovely walking tracks. The only down side was phone signal unless you have telstra you won't get reception. And WiFi was not very great either. So if you're after a getaway from technology and looking for a truly...

This being our first time to this location, we arrived to see lots parrots in the park. You will be inundated by the parrots to feed out of your hand, with lots of Koala Bears in the trees and sometimes can been seen walking by your camping site. This area has lots of walks and other things to do. The...

The site was fairly quiet when we were there, facilities are not bad but I can imagine that they would be stretched if the site was full. All staff were very helpful, suggested a couple of walks all of which we enjoyed. The wildlife is fantastic, especially the koala's, we also saw a couple of kangaroo's near the river.

Another 10 day holiday auction. Didn't know what to expect after the bushfires in 2015. Thankfully this area was untouched. Lovely little park on the Great Ocean Road. Very friendly, helpful staff who even gave tourist information advice. Clean, well maintained amenities. Pity there's no dump point but were allowed to empty cassettes in public toilet side. Beach across the...

I absolutely fell in love with this park the first time we stayed there. To have a pitch with a koala doing acrobatics in a tree right next to you was amazing. The number of koalas and other wildlife was simply awesome. The pitches were grass with plenty of mature trees on site to attract kookaburras, lorikeets and rosellas. On...

Staying at this place felt like living in a zoo! Our 6 year-old daughter couldn't get enough of feeding the parrots and chasing the ducks. We have also enjoyed watching the birds and koalas. But do keep in mind it's not your typical family-oriented big camp site. No jumping pillow, playground is small and Wi-Fi is very poor. But the...

We camped here for 5 nights and enjoyed every minute of it. The staff were helpful and friendly. The toilets and showers were clean and cleaned regularly. It was fantastic that you could have a fire and think the rules in place for the use of fires were reasonable. The park itself was beautiful with lots of wildlife. Great place...
