Two families with a total of 7 stayed in a 3 bedroom cabin for 3 nights. Cabin was clean and well supplied with linen, toiletries and kitchen utensils. There was no extra charge for one extra person bringing their own bedding. It does say on the back of the map you receive on check in that you need to boil... More

Good price, great location, beautiful drive from Melbourne along the Great Ocean Road, oh and there's wild koalas in the trees! Its not a chance to get up close to them, but if you bring binoculars you can see them good and for me that was awesome enough. There's metal cans to build fires in and toast some marshmallows, reasonably... More

Facilities were decent, cabin was nice, but we were left with quite a sour taste in our mouth upon leaving due to very poor customer service overall. Attempted to call the park to book over 10 times a week before staying, no answer. Finally got a call back 2 days after I left a message. Tried to call a few... More

My husband informed me that we were stopping here for a night, knowing his bargain hunting ways I was expecting a basic cabin with nothing more than a bed or 2 to sleep on. How shocked and delighted I was when we arrived and I found a king size bed, heating and everything we could need for a comfortable night,... More

Arrived after recommendation from friend . Long trip and got there after dark on chilly evening. Reception was equally chilly. Site allocated was not numbered and seemed to be hacked out of local hillside. Difficult to find in the dark and even more difficult to find a level surface for the Tvan. Holiday crowd was in full flight with several... More

Excellent location for exploring Otway NP and the lighthouse in particular. The staff were very helpful and friendly upon our arrival and accommodating in letting us check in early with a sleepy 3 month old - changing us to Deluxe suite #2 which was free at the time. Good hot water and heating, nice bed and couch and plenty of... More

We loved Bimbi Park! We stayed three nights in our van and got to experience pizza and movie night, the koalas and the beautiful 10km round walk along the coast. The facilities were exceptional and we loved the mini golf and tidy park grounds. We also found the park owners to be very friendly and helpful. This is one of... More

Do not expect to see many koala in the park. We spotted only a few after hard search for the koala. The cabin was clean, pretty and comfortable but was extremely noisy with the wind and raining sound which make sleeping quality very poor.
