We were excited to take the kids here on our trip around Aus after reading such great reviews. We booked 3 nights but had to leave after one. There was a large school group camping out of the main area and it was just horrible. They were well behaved group but their sheer numbers made the place so noisy!! It... More

Where did this place even come from? After a long day on the Great Ocean track seeing nothing but OZ wildlife, suddenly this jewel shows up in the bush. They have dorms, a shop, internet, rooms, camp sites, a living area, a campers kitchen, barbie, book exchange, connections to the shuttle, a theater, great new bathrooms ($1/ 3min shower).. the...

Great space to pitch a tent, lots of room, lots of accommodation options. Clean toilets/showers and good number of them. There is a camp kitchen area but we didn't use. Very happy with the price, especially since the national parks have jacked up prices! Koalas and kookaburras surround the site. Great location near Cape Otway light house ;) Easy booking... More

If you have never seen a koala before, this is definitely the place to go. The tranquillity of the surroundings mixed with the abundance of koalas created an incredible magical like atmosphere. Staff were incredibly friendly, the showers were amazing for a camp site! Best camp site I have been to in Australia.

Frank and Katrina's hospitality is not to be missed if you are looking for somewhere to stay in the area. Stayed recently as part of a Raw Travel walking group, the cabins were comfortable and clean and Frank's cooking is excellent! Thanks for a great stay and I would definitely return if in the area!

Bimbi Park played an enormous part in the success of our Great Otway Walk adventure- Organising walk shuttle buses, helping us with supplies and phone calls, providing food and general goodwill. We really really appreciated the warmth, generosity, assistance and lovely pizza!! Great facilities and activities, with a wide range of accommodation options ranging from un-powered sites right through to... More

We stayed here recently while walking the Great Ocean Road track and found the cabins to be of a high standard (comfortable and clean) and a wonderful end to a hard days walking. The shower was fantastic and the pizza on Saturday night was a real treat. The camp ground is in a lovely setting and we were looked after... More

Our trip to Bimbi was very disappointing. The campsite is sold as "camping under koalas" but in fact the koalas tend to be around the roads running up to the site and none on the actual campsite at all. In fact, the trees in the campsite are all covered at the bottom with plastic so koalas can't even get up... More

Dear Izzy, Thank you for leaving a review. We are sorry we didn’t meet your expectations. There are 18 koalas (some with babies) in the park. The bands are on the trees to limit the number of koalas in each tree. Most the Manna Gums south of here are dead due to over browsing by koalas. I have a photo... More
