Come here often it's run by a very lovely family and always enjoyed our stay. No reception is perfect nice to get away and be left alone. Stayed in a few different rooms to a tent and had a great time every time. Movies in the cinema to pizza nights make for a great stay. Lovely staff and reasonably priced... More

Did not see a koala the entire time, so that's a lie. We stayed in the camping pod, was dirty and it smelt. I don't know what is worse, the FILTHY kitchen or the owners of the establishment's dog barking ALL NIGHT LONG. Great location, no reception or wifi which was a really good break from reality. They promote horse... More

We are sorry we didn't meet your expectations. Katrina and I are and were away during your stay. There are currently 18 koalas in the park. Sometimes there are hard to see. We normally get great reviews for our cleanliness. The pod is really plain and easy to clean. Our dog is usually very well behaved, loved by all and... More

We had a wonder group event at Bimbi Park for the celebration of the life of a friend who recently died. There were around 50 of us at the peak and the wonderful commercial kitchen, Lounge/Dining and covered outdoor area wood fired pizza oven saw us all well looked after and fed. The Cabins were perfect and so was everything... More

Stayed a single night in one of the cabins. Would have loved to have been able to spend more time at the park. Arrived later than expected and the management was very accommodating. Cabin was well equipped and very comfortable. Would like to return in the future when we have more time to enjoy!

We stayed here during the autumn school holidays. It's a great family campsite in the forest on Cape Otway. The highlight is obviously the koalas which are plentiful in the trees surrounding the campsite. There is also plenty of other wildlife about. If you do the walk out to the lighthouse be warned that getting into the lighthouse compound is... More

Uncountable stars at night time Uncountable koalas at day time The cabin was very clean and equipped. Close to apollo bay and otway fly. This park is suitable for everyone even children and seniors. When you go there, must visit the light station and the otway fly adventure.

Living in Melbourne we always have visitors from overseas. 12 Apostles is a must in Victoria and Bimbi Park is the stop we choose to stay overnight. We have stayed there 4 times with friends or family. They have options for all, from bush camping to nice and comfortable en suite cabins. It's nice to have a bush walk to... More

This was our second family visit to Bimbi on the June long weekend with friends. Between 4 families, we have tried several types of accommodation over the 2 years, and have not been disappointed. Last year we stayed in a 5 berth bunk room, which has very comfortable beds, linen, pillows and a blanket per bed, with a heater (much... More

First time staying with little furry creatures above our roof! Spotted around 5 koalas after some serious looking while trekking or driving through the woods. So excited each time we manage to see a koala! Clean and well furnished rooms!
