We stayed at this lovely holiday park over Easter, very clean and well run! The gentleman that looks after the grounds went above to get hold of a fire pit for us as it was cold and the one we brought did not meet regulations. There were koalas all throughout the park as well as beautiful birds that the kids... More

The sites were big, the place is well maintained (toilet blocks were clean), and reception was very helpful To be honest, we didn't shower there so can't comment on that. It was a one night stop over for us. We saw 6 koalas before sunset. The next morning we hand-fed a king parrot and lots of crimson rosella - no... More

Despite having only one playground this is a great campground for families with young kids. Big shady sites, firepits (seasonal), koalas roaming through the park, rosellas and kookaburras, gloworms up the road, a nice beach, fishing in the river ... the list goes on.

We travelled to Kennet River as part of a regular group of VW enthusiasts and were warmly welcomed with our kombis old and new. The camp has reasonable amenities (though the showers are the smallest I have ever experienced), everything is clean and well maintained. The management are really helpful loaning us a drill to attach our awning and dropping... More

Great: location on Great Ocean Road, near the beaches and scenery. Tent site was next to common area/kitchen, ground soft enough that tent stakes were placed easily. There were lots of families with kids. Less appealing: watch for duck poop, ducks roam freely. The shower stalls are few in number, and even though there is a sign asking users to... More

Hi Theresa P, Thankyou for your visit and your review. Kennett River Holiday Park is a popular place to stay, particularly with families on the weekends and school holidays throughout the peak season, December - April. We do have 4 toilets in the park that are open for public access and at times these do get busy. All other bathrooms... More

It would be superb, EXCEPT -- the management provide these huge, amateur-looking home made fireplace drums to anybody who wants one. In a park of only a few dozen sites, it's likely you will be totally surrounded by poorly-burning smoky campfires. Many people bring their own crummy wood from home (I noticed people burning treated pine and formaldehyde plywood, which... More

Hi Ado 10001, Thanks for taking the time to provide your feedback. I was sorry to hear the smoke from campfires had an impact on your stay. Wood fires are not for everyone. We are one of the few parks around that still allows fires. Fires are very popular with many of our guests and are one of the reasons... More

Generally a lovely caravan-park.. but OMG the big bus Tour Groups!!! Once they`re flocking into the park in search of koala bears after 11am , make sure you have built heavy boundaries around your campsite. A clothes line or camping chairs won`t stop them. We managed to get more privacy after we parked the car in front of the Caravan... More

Hi NiccOnThe Road, Thanks for taking the time to provide your feedback. I am sorry to hear the tour group had an impact on your stay at Kennett River Holiday Park.

The holiday park is such a great way to interact with wildlife and to get away from the city life. Very family friendly. It is such a great place to spend time with the family. Kennett River is the place to be.

We stayed one night at a cabin in Kennett River Holiday Park, and it was a great experience. There are plenty of koalas on trees of this park and many parrots and cockatoos. The park is very close to a nice beach, where you can enjoy the relaxing sounds of oceans waves from your room, especially during night when fewer... More

On arrival check in was effortless with the staff being very friendly. We stepped out of our car and up to our cabin we were surrounded by Sulphur Crested Cockatoos and Lorikeets before we even opened our door. The cabin was very spacious and very tastefully furnished with excellent cooking facilities. We put our bags away and headed out to... More
