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

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. We try hard behind the scenes to manage tour groups and keep an eye on tourists while inside the park. The busy tour time is 11am -12am. Your advise... More

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

We stayed at Kennett River from 10/11/14 to 14/11/14, it was fantastic!! We were greeted by lovely friendly hosts, nothing was too much trouble for them. The cabin we stayed in was very clean and the beds were very comfortable. Everything we needed was supplied in the cabin. But the best part, for us, was outside, there were Koala's in... More

We stayed here for 2 nights in the July school holidays, based on the fact that we were told by the owners that we would definitely see koalas. We arrived and immediately saw them on the walk ,to the side of the park and lots too,was truly amazing. Didn't see them anywhere else on the Great Ocean Road. The park... More

It was an impromptu decision to camp overnight at this holiday park. And it was the best decision ever! We're totally blown away as there were koalas all over the park. In fact there was one just right up the tree outside the reception. Toilets were very clean and spacious with awesome water pressure. Common kitchen was very clean and... More

We stayed here for our first night in a campervan in September and returned due to the glorious sound of the surf and the wildlife. This was our first time in Australia, and we were delighted with the koalas and birds. After travelling around the south back to Sydney, we have more parks to compare, and there are some considerations... More

We stayed in cabin 1 which is just across the Great Ocean Road from the ocean. The cabin has two bedrooms. One has two sets of bunk beds and the other has a queen bed. The kitchen has dishes for six. Everything is clean and tidy. Even with the windows closed you can hear the ocean. Several different birds are... More

Hi connie s, Thanks for staying with us and thanks for the review. I am glad the cabin had everything you needed for your stay. There is something special about being able to hear the sound of the ocean from your accommodation. Hope we see you again some day. More
