Nice caravan park amongst the forest. Amenities clean and spacious. 1$ for 3 min shower which is understandable as they use springwater. The environment is beautiful and close to beach and cape Otway lighthouse(walking distance 1h) but you walk through the NP and can see lots of koalas. No tv or phone reception.

It was a lovely experience to spend time at Bimbi Park. Met some great people here. Walking along the road heading towards Bimbi Park, you will find at least 10 wild koalas on the way. A great camping atmosphere that allows you to get close to the nature and animals. Great value, great place to stay for campers, nature and... More

I stayed in the car and there're enough places. The kitchen was well looked after and you also have the BBQ outside. Showers and toilets are really lovely (you have to pay for the shower though). I wanted to walk to the lighthouse... it's way further than you think, trust me!!!! Saw lovely kangaroos and koala's though. One slept right... More

We had a camper van and we were took a powered lot. True no koalas in the camp - lots on the road into the... More

Our walking group of 25 stayed in the cabins for a week while we walked along The Great Ocean Road. Accomodation excellent...Katrina and Frank provided our meals which were superb. We were looked after so well. The setting of the park is wonderful..lots of bird life and plenty of Koala's.

We spent a week at Bimbi Park with our walking group. It was the base camp for our walk along the Great Ocean Walk. Our accommodation was very comfortable and clean, with all the requirements for a comfortable stay. There was plenty of hot water, electric blankets on some beds and efficient heaters. There are other more basic forms of... 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!
