we have visited Bimbi Park on numerous occasions throughout the last few years and we ABSOLUTELY LOVE IT! Kat and frank are amazing hosts and tend do your every need. We always feel like part of the family when up there and love the atmosphere sitting around the eating area at night with other guests, enjoying a drink and franks... More

We were planning to sleep in port Campbell but we ran late and stopped here. The camping is great, the toilets are clean, our room was nice and cheap (bulk room with 5 beds for 60 dollars) ... Lovely place!

I went there with my girlfriend, we had a great time but the centre of focus around there is family's with children. If you're going to moutain bike ride like we were do it! There's sone great tracks but get used to the kids running around and yelling! There's lots of that too :):)

I took two of my German friends to Bimbi park for a weekend away. You are guaranteed to see Koala's on the drive to the site and if you're up early enough Kangaroo's too! $50 for an all weather tent "pod" was great value split 3 ways. I'll be staying here again sometime soon!

We stayed at Bimbi as part of The Great Ocean Walk and were all very quickly won over by Frank and Katrina's warm hospitality, gorgeous little cabins, beautiful surrounds but mostly by Frank's cooking! Only downside to that was the next place couldn't possibly live up to our new found expectations of hiking fare. Would definitely recommend, thank you Frank... More

I was looking for peace and quiet and thats exactly what I got for a May trip during off-peak times.Everything was nice here. Tidy sites, clean toilets and other amenities, very polite staff, and a goodnight song from some Kookaburras and also an early morning wake up call from the same. What more could I ask? Actually only one thing.... More

I was part of a group of 6 from Diabetes QLD walking the Great Ocean Walk to raise money for those living with Diabetes. Bimbi Park was our base to return to each day whilst we walked the 100km's in 5 days. Frank and Kat were great hosts. We had great meals and the deluxe cabins kept us warm, dry... More

We spent two nights at Bimbi Park on our trip along the west coast. Our main aim was to see koalas (which was amply met), but Bimbi Park offered much more. There are a variety of walks and it's a paradise for bird lovers. We saw gang gang cockatoos, galahs and lorikeets, but must have got up too late for... More

The location of the campsite is definitely its main draw. The walk down to the lighthouse and along to station beach made our stay here so memorable. We saw the odd koala, but not a huge amount as the site are trying to preserve the trees and thus have covered the trunks to prevent them climbing up. There was plenty... More

Dear Ben S, Thankyou for taking the time to write a review. The walks from here are amazing; this is a beautiful part of Victoria. Kat and I love it . The cabin you stayed in, is in front of the toilet block to cater for any disabled customers we may have. There is a ramp in front for people... More

We were a group of 12 walking the Great Ocean Road with RAW travel who chose Bimbi Park cabins for our accommodation. Spotlessly clean, soundproof, with heating and kitchen facilities, TV etc. Generous hosts and way above average cooking skills in a contemporary dining room as well as one night under the stars eating pizzas made fresh in the outdoor...
