Took the Autumn Special, great deal ... Wine, Bistro credit.. food was great and staff friendly. The Otway fly and glow worms are so close and the waterfalls (no time for those this trip but next time) Would stay again.

Hi Linda, Thank you for your review. Yes, our Autumn Special has proven to be very popular, as such, we are going to extend it right through winter, I guess we will have to rename it our Winter Special. You certainly will have to come back to see the waterfalls, they are amazing this time of the year. Hope to...

Reviewed 30 October 2016 via mobile

The caravan park is in a great location, across the road from a general store, a walk away from a pub and has access to a rail trail fir bike rides. The park has a small camp kitchen, swimming pool and the sites are huge and shaded and very green. We had an ensuite l site which was great.

This was our third stay at this park with 3 other families together and it's become a bit of an annual tradition. We love the pretty location and the quiet of Gellibrand and the fact that it's not too far from home. The facilities are good, a clean laundry, camp kitchen and toilet blocks and on all visits we have...

Hi Tracey, We regret that the weekend did not turn out as expected. At the time of your enquiry re the site conditions, I rightly replied that it was wet but not soggy. The rain which fell during the next two days was not forecasted and quickly saturated the Park. As you have stated that this was your third stay...

We found this little gem on a random weekend getaway. Tucked into the base of the Otways, in Gellibrand, the Otway Tourist Park is located about 20 minute out of Colac. There is accommodation to suit everyone. Camping sites are available with or without power, also ensuite sites too. Camping spots are grassy and lush, lots of shade too. Cabins...

Thank you for your positive review, we are glad you found our Park and enjoyed your stay. We try very hard to make our guests as welcome and comfortable as we can. In regard to the pool, the trouble with solar heating is that we need sunshine for it to be effective, also any gains during the day are lost...

We are travelling Victoria and South Australia with a caravan and are currently staying at the Otway Tourist Caravan Park in Gellibrand. The owners are extremely helpful, the sites spacious and grassed and the facilities clean and in good order. Highly recommended for anyone wanting to visit the area and walk the Old Beechy Rail Trail.

Thank you for your kind review and thank you for staying with us. Being right on the Old Beechy Rail Trail we welcome many guests who either ride or walk the trail, although I must confess that I have only travelled parts of it myself. In addition, the close proximity to some of the best waterfalls in the Otways makes...

Our motorcycle club held our 2016 club rally here in March. Everyone made comment about the great location and the tidy park and facilities. The owners are very welcoming and willing to please, offering great rates for our multiple bookings. The onsite bistro is a bonus, with a General Store across the road, and a Pub a short walk away....

We are just home from our fourth annual camping trip to Gellibrand, as part of a much bigger group (up to 18 families) who combine camping with cabins. My family camp in a camper trailer and we absolutely love this park. The sites are green and grassy, lots of trees, very lush and soft. The bathroom amenities are always spotless...

While the area is beautiful and the hosts are friendly the park would be more suited to camping in summer. As a camper I am not so fussed by cabins being old but this one was very disappointing. Cabin 3, booked as a luxury / deluxe was very far from either of these descriptions. It was warm enough and there...

We stayed here several years back and had a great stay that time. Unfortunately on this occasion the opposite was true. We booked a "deluxe cabin" for $140 per night. we were put into C6, which is opposite the dump point (we were unlucky enough to have someone use it just as we were unpacking the car and it stank!)....

  • bathroom- fine once we cleaned the basin top
  • dining and kitchen nice and cosy, heating good
  • ladder doesn't fit the bed and this was with it up against the wall so no more room to move
  • this is the ladder meant to be used for the bunk bed - note it's wooden and the bed is metallic!
