The park is in a great location amid the natural bush with the surf beach over the road. Amenities are quite dated but clean and well maintained. The General Store has limited stock so best to bring everything you need

The facilities are very basic and not the cleanest, thankfully we only stayed for 2 nights. One of the shower blocks is only accessible with a key, to prevent beach goers from using them, but they were dirty our whole stay. We travelled over the AFL Grand final long weekend when the GOR was damaged by heavy rains. The campsites...

Beautiful, clean and green. Good size sites and dated but spotless amenities. The wildlife is amazing, koalas in the numbers I have never seen before other than at a zoo. Parrots, ducks, foxes. This place could be a zoo but they are all wild. Amazing couple of days, thank you.

A great location, but not a lot has changed over the years. Facilities are old and limited by having only 2 showers. For the price a lot more is expected. Wildlife was plentiful and I loved hearing the waves crashing during the night.

We stayed at the Kennett River Holiday Park on the Australia Day long weekend in 2017. We had two sites, shred with friends. The park is shady, grassy and a great place to stay. If you look up, you will regularly spot koalas browsing in the tree tops - and if you look around you will probably see the bus...

We stayed at this camp site on our way down the Great Ocean Road and it was well-equipted for our needs. There was also lots of wildlife, well behaved birds like parrots and cockatoos, cuddly Koalas in the trees and we took a night drive to see glow worms a very short distance. An excellent stay and we would recommend...

a good road to check the koalas and get to know the lookout of apollo bay ;) I got to see many cute baby koalas. Don t spend your money in the lighthouse. 20 dollares for something that you can go by yourself.

Spent 1 week at Kennett River Holiday Park. Was lovely and quiet, beach across the road, a river to fish from and lovely walking tracks. The only down side was phone signal unless you have telstra you won't get reception. And WiFi was not very great either. So if you're after a getaway from technology and looking for a truly...
