March was possibly the worst time of the year to go to this place, as that seems to be the heart of the tourist season. Whilst everyone was reasonably quiet and well behaved we were hoping for more of a "bush setting" to camp rather than the average cheek-by-jowl caravan park which was pretty much what we found. Every night... More

Dear Rubin M, Thank you for leaving a review but sorry we didn’t meet your expectations. March and the Easter holidays are a very busy time and all caravan parks are full. Thank you for mentioning that the other guests were quiet as we try hard to keep it peaceful. If you prefer bush camping and not many people around... More

We drove here straight after getting off a plane and picking up a camper van in Melbourne. An inordinate hold up at the van rental place meant we were later arriving at Bimbi Park than we'd hoped ... and that's about the only negative I have to say. So exciting driving down the road and seeing roo's and koalas on... More

After a scenic drive in under the gums from the main road, stopping to allow the shooters of Koala memories and their long lenses taking home the memories in the trees and helping some other motorists clear the road of a branch off a random gum. Bimbi Park appeared with a carpark full of checking in and a shop busy... More

Great place to stay, hop step and jump to the beach. Accommodation in the deluxe cabins was very good, great linen and mattresses. The cabin we were in slept 2 in single beds and 4 in bunks. Kitchen was good not to much but just enough, bbq facilities and reasonable shop on site. Would suggest that a little bit more... More

Dear DanDon2011, Thankyou for leaving a great review, We are glad you enjoyed Bimbi Park, we love it here too. The beds in the cabins are better than the one we have at home!!!! With the lights, it's a hard one to find a balance between enough lighting without ruining the natural night sky. Once again thankyou for your review.... More

Bimbi Park is in the beautiful Otway National Park and has a variety of accommodation from cabins to bunk rooms and tent camping. It has a very well equipped kitchen with dining areas outside where you can watch the galahs, cockatoos and gang-gangs fly about. It is indeed a gem of a place, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay, with beautiful... More

Such a beautiful place and the deluxe cabin was so wonderful, beautiful view out to the paddock with the horses close by, very very peaceful. Was there when there was a school camp and bit busy but not bad. Loved this place, wonderful owners very helpful and friendly. Amazing to see Koalas in their natural habitat not far from entering...

Dear Jaybeme, Thankyou for your great review. We love getting them as it show us that our business is heading in the right direction. We have very few if no problems with the schools that stay with us as they have their own section of the park well away from everyone else. Once again thankyou and see you next time. More

Having stayed here I am compelled to write my first review on Trip Advisor as this place truly deserves an honourable mention.

This was matched with the impeccable upkeep and maintenance of their... More

Bimbi Park (and Katrina and Frank) are absolutely phenomenal! We just got married here in late Feb 2015 surrounded by everyone who loves us most and couldn't have asked for a more perfect weekend. EVERYONE absolutely loved it, the accommodation is impeccably clean and even our fussiest guests were catered for. Katrina and Frank went far out of their way... More

Friendly staff, plenty of koalas lots of space to spread out. We had a cabin and powered site all very well maintained. The toilets and showers always clean and in good condition. A beautiful natural setting.
