    was in Bimbipark with 2 friends last November 2008. We visited the great ocean road and stopped in Bimbipark for the night. We slept in a van. It was a great moment with the noise of koalas in the trees. We spent a good time ant would recommand this place especially for families or groups of persons.

    Stayed at Bimbi park March 2009 with my son and his family, it’s their favorite camp ground and we can see why.
    Will be back some day to savour more delights of your unique campground

    Modern amenities that also have very efficient water usage design, koalas living above many of the sites, other Australian fauna all so close by, tranquility both day and night, easy access to stunningly beautiful and grand scenery, very well stocked shop, friendly management, good cooking facilities, and even more reasons why I’m impressed and enjoy Bimbi Park.

    One of the best accommodations we have stayed at with our two girls. We love the hands on animals and being so close to them. Would recommend to anyone who enjoys being with nature and animals. It’s a must!

    This is how other parts of Victoria used to be over my years of camping, but with man rapidly destructing the earth, lets do all we can to preserve this little piece of truly amazing paradise.

    My Wife and I have been going to Bimbi Park every Easter for 25 years.
    The Owners are very friendly and helpful and the Ameneties are first class.
    The Grandkids love feeding the horses and looking for Koala’s in the trees
    It is the most friendly and relaxing park we have stayed in.

    We had a great time camping in our tent at Bimbi Park and exploring Cape Otway and surrounds – even with the gale force winds and hail! In weather like that, it was reassuring to know that the amenities were so good so there was somewhere to escape to if the tent blew away, which thankfully it didn’t. We’ll be back for sure (hopefully in finer weather though!).

    Bimbi Park is a rare delight! Situated in a cluster of remnant gum trees casting dappled light. A short walk over enchanting grassy hills (with horses!) is a dune track with stunning views and short decent to epic beaches and the beautiful Rainbow Falls. We love this part of the world and we love this park.

    Oct 5th, 2009 at 3:09 pm

    Bimbi Park is a fantastic base to explore the sights of the nearby bush, rainforest, beaches, rolling hills, cliffs, lighthouses, plants and animals. Without them our adventure along the Great Ocean Road would not have been so wonderful. The staff are amazing and helpful too!

    A big group of friends met up at the fabulous Bimbi Park in April this year. We stayed in a cabin that had all we could ask for and more and the amenities were top notch. We will definetly be back, might stay in one of the cute caravans next time. Great walks, great facilities and you really are sleeping under the koalas!

    After surviving Black Saturday bushfire in Kinglake I needed to stay somewhere green, peaceful, beautiful and abundant in wildlife. Bimbi Park is such a place. Being so close to forests and the ocean, Bimbi Park is ideal for walking, running, photography, bird watching, koala spotting, writing and relaxing.

  26. 148 Meg
    Oct 5th, 2009 at 11:49 am

    I can’t count the amount of times we have stayed at Bimbi now. Our kids EXPECT to go every year and naturally, we all love it. Camping under koalas only happens at Bimbi – our kids love the outside theatre and the horse riding and toasting marshmallows over bonfires.

    we found bimbi park by accident and keep going back each year on our way to the falls festival – it’s a nice way to wind down into festival mode, watch sunset on the beach, and the facilities are awesome!

  30. 144 Nathan Patterson
    Oct 5th, 2009 at 10:48 am

    I have stayed at Bimbi Park on numerous occasions and have also taken school groups to Park and everytime it has been a very comfortable and pleasurable expreience. Frank and the team are extremely welcoming and prepared to go that extra step to ensure guests enjoy their time at Bimbi Park.
    Bimbi Park is definatly an ideal location to escape the hussle and bussell of everyday life.

    We had great stay at Bimbi Park. Our cabin was very clean and comfortable and Frank and Katrina couldn’t have been more helpful, especially in helping us plan our Great Ocean Walk. The site was beautiful with wonderful gum trees full of contented koalas and kookaburras. Have recommended to others as the place to stay! Left there with very fond memories, we had a wonderful stay.

    We’ve stayed at Bimbi a few times now and every time has been great fun. The kids loved horseriding, the chickens and freedom to roam and spotting koalas and possums. Great beaches. Showers and facilities very good. Just a great feel to the place, would recommend it with out hesitation!

  36. 138 Julia Johnson
    Oct 5th, 2009 at 8:53 am

    Bimbi Park is an awesome place to stay whilst visiting the magnificent Otway Ranges. The hosts, Frank and Katrina ensure a fun family experience is had by all. Bimbi Park is a MUST STAY destination.

    I have stayed here both as an independant traveller and with a school group. It’s facilities are second to none, offering a range of alternatives, from camping in tents amongst the many koalas (which happily wander right through the site not more than a few metres from where we were eating breakfast) through to the self contained cabins. Location is very convenient to the range of activities on offer throughout the region – 12 Apostles, GOR, Cape Otway lighthouse, Great Ocean Walk (which we undertook), horse riding onsite. New owners were wonderful, extremely helpful and pleasant to deal with, and oh the pizzas!! Will be back.

    Can you imagine walking the Great Ocean Walk and staying in a five star cabin and have restaurant meals served on your balcony each night. You may say Tell him he’s dreaming. Well this is exactly what 10 of us experienced in March this year at Bimbi Park.

  41. 133 Nick
    Oct 5th, 2009 at 7:39 am

    We had a really lovely stay at Bimbi Park, I’ve never seen so many Koala’s! The Otway region is a wonderful place to visit, our kids had a great time. We will certainly stay at Bimbi Park again soon, this time bringing friends with us who weren’t able to come last time.

    Cape Otway is one of the great MUST VISIT locations in Victoria and Bimbi Park is a wonderful place to stay for both groups and families – well run and friendly you will have a great time.

    We loved camping under koalas! We were pretty sure we were watching the koala above us as much as he was watching us queer creatures. Throughout our visit in OZ, we met a number of good samaritans and Frank was one of them. He was the only kind caravan park operator on GOR who responded positively and said he could “squeeze us in” a small spot to camp for the night during Dec’08 peak season. I’ll be going back to GOR again mid this month and this time, bringing my sis along to experience sleeping under koalas :)

    Not only a wonderful park but a truly inspiring time for my family and me.

    The indigenous learning inter-active was the highlight of our holiday.

    Also, the family friendly nature of the park extended to our moderately autistic 7yo. Everyone was very kind and helpful.

    6 stars!

    Lovely quiet and spacious camping ground with terrific cabins and facilities. We stayed in a brand new cabin with our friends in an identical one next door .Cabins were very well designed and comfortable and we enjoyed having a fire outside at night. Great spot for horse-riding, bushwalks and a trip to the ‘twelve apostles’ coastline.

    Our “Just Friends Walking Group” had a wonderful week at Bimbi Park. It is a beautiful area and Frank & Katrina were fantastic hosts. Food was great (probably too much was the only complaint) and nothing was too much trouble. Very highly recommended.

    Renovations over the last few years have been great, from the on-site caravans to the new toilet block. Great atmosphere with the resident sheep and Koalas. Access to the local attractions such as the Great Ocean Walk and Cape Otway Lighthouse very easy from Bimbi Park. Frank and Katrina (as always) are always wonderful hosts when we come down to visit.

    Sep 29th, 2009 at 4:46 pm

    Absolutely a delightful place to stay with koalas and bird life everywhere. Closeness to Great Ocean Rd walk was such a blessing, being able to go on day walks from Bimbi. Our cabin facilities where great and our hosts could not be more helpful. Loved the resident sheep and goat who added character to the place.
    Would stay again without a second thought.

    Bimbi is one of our favourite camping spots. We love the secluded bush camps where the children can explore the bush, count the koalas and enjoy watching native birds. There are plenty of walks from the camping ground ideal for bird watchers and photographers. This is a clean, friendly and well run park. We look forward to our next visit.

    Our fav place to stay. Working within the Tourism Industry myself I can vouch for the level of Customer Service. They treat all guest like they are part of the park and one of the reasons we keep going back. We have had Astrology nights, pizza nights, movie nights the list goes on.

    Well Done Frank & Katrina

    Great family holiday spot. Fantastic hosts with activities nearly every night including wood-fired pizza night and ye olde movie on the outdoor screen. Lovely setting with walks to the beach and the boys had fun riding their bikes around with all the other kids. They also loved feeding the chooks and collecting eggs. Would love to go back.

    Sep 28th, 2009 at 9:35 pm

    Last stayed at Bimbi Park both in tents and in cabins whilst doing the Great Ocean Walk. Even though the amenties block was being reconstructed and a little chaotic at the time the facilities were not wanting for anything and now presumably finished will be more than ideal. Bimbi is a beautiful balance of comfortable cabin accomodation amidst natural bush with many completely unspoilt bush sites for those who would rather enjoy it in a tent. The Chapel (I presume it’s still there) is an absolutely superb area to sit during the quiet times and contemplate. Best experienced as the sun is rising.
    As a base camp for those walking the Great Ocean Walk or any of the other delights of the Otways you would be hard pressed to find a more delightful spot to stay than Bimbi. We’ll be back!

    The Great Ocean Walk was the best holiday we have experienced and Bimbi Park provided us with the perfect base. Superb amenities and wonderful hospitality from Frank, Katrina and our shuttle driver Leigh, combined with the breath taking scenery, made this a very special week.

    Bimbi Park suited us perfectly for our getaway from the city. A fine cabin, relaxed friendly atmosphere, and plenty of great bush complete with koalas to see both in the park and around it. We must return for another week to explore the other walks to the beach and to savour a different season of birds.

    Bimbi Park is a great getaway, especially for families! With great facilities and located in fantastic native bushland with massive gum trees and generous camp sites it is a camper’s dream: Not far from the Otway lighthouse, with abundant wildlife all around (including plenty of koalas in the trees above you), this park offers an open-air cinema and horse rides to the beach. It only takes a short trip by car to explore other gems in this region – Mait’s Rest Rainforest Walk, The Otway Fly and Apollo Bay to name a few.
    Bimbi Park also offers a number of cabins and powered sites for caravans. Very friendly and helpful management, great atmosphere all around!
    Don’t miss it – you will have a great time!

    Family fun and natural beauty is what Bimbi park is all about. We enjoy the koalas, the walks, the convenience to local beaches and townships. We especially like all of the activities on offer including horse riding, Wood oven pizza night,camp fires, movies in the retro cinema etc… My favourite night was when an aboriginal elder came to speak to us about the history of the site and various bush tickers foods that are in abundance in cape otway. We can’t wait to get back and see all the crew from Bimbi park

    I’ve taken groups of university students down to Bimbi Park for the past several years and our group has used it as a base for studies on the diverse flora and fauna of the Cape Otway region. (Koalas are only the beginning!) Frank and Katrina have been enthusiastic and very cooperative hosts, always helping to make our stay very enjoyable and productive. I’ve heard many compliments from our students about the excellent facilities and the beautiful surrounds. It’s also a great place for an interesting holiday, with many things to see nearby. I can’t recommend Bimbi Park highly enough!

    Bimbi Park is one of those undiscovered gems. At first glance it does not seem impressive until you stay the night and discover a secluded spot with lots of wildlife and things to discover with the kids. It has a great location, near the Otway Fly, the lighthouse and there are lots of walks. I don’t want to promote it too much as I’d rather have it to myself!

    Whether camping or cabins Bimbi has it all for our family – the kids love it and we can unwind from city life and get close to nature with horse riding, koala spotting and walks to rainbow falls, station beach or Cape Otway lighthouse. Its also a great base from which to explore the region or just kick back in the central eating area enjoying the tranquility of the park and where the kids have fun with other kids in a safe environment. The kids always get excited when we say we are off to Bimbi for a long weekend or holiday as its an adventure but with all the creature comforts which makes it hard to leave!

    Our stay at Bimbi Park was fantastic. Beautiful location, fabulous facilities and friendly management. Our dog, Astro, loved the free play areas and swimming in the creek over the road. Just a short drive away was a beautiful dog friendly surf beach. All in all a great place to get away from it all..thanks

    My family and I have stayed at Bimbi Park many times. We love the unspoilt ‘close to nature’ feeling of the place. Early morning walks down to Station Beach, outrides through bush and along the beach, and a choice of 3 or 4 stunning beaches to explore and enjoy only a few minutes away. The kids love it – the horseriding, freedom to roam and the classic old-time outdoor cinema under the trees. The hosts Frank and Katrina are so warm and welcoming, and very relaxed, and their renovations are fantastic. I love to take my foreign visitiors to Bimbi – a stunning taste of Australia – native bush,birds and koalas everywhere. Not far from Melbourne and yet a million miles away!

    Bimbi is a unique and special place. I believe it is a place of healing. There are lots of stories of people staying at Bimbi and getting better. I have been staying at Bimbi for about 20 years. I bring my daughter and nephew now and they love it to. the nature, the bushwalks and the horseriding.

    The surrounding nature of the magnificant Otways Ranges and the Shipwreck coast are of course fantantic! Bimbi Park itself is awesome. they have great facilities and the management always go that extra step for our comfort.

    they deserve to win and I hope they will.

    We experienced our best ever Easter at Bimbi Park and all booked to go again next year….the kids love the natural enviroment with all the Koala’s, Kookaburra’s and animals wandering around…what a life..and what a place to relax…

  120. 54 Chris Edwards

    Bimbi park is a great place for families and those who want to go bush yet still have some creature comforts. The modern water wise amenities block I consider the best facilities seen and always clean, the same goes for the camp kitchen. The koala’s don’t let you down they are always there along with the bird life and other native animals. Theirs always something to do with bush walks and horse riding available. Tell you what don’t listen to me go find out for yourself and enjoy.

    What a fantastic place Bimbi Park is. I have stayed there many times with my family and just love the serenity coupled with the multitude of activities available. A few years ago my partner and I did a two day horse ride through the bush and along the beach and it stays in my mind as a fun and memorable experience.

    Fantastic park and facilities. The friendly hosts always had a smile on their faces and made us feel most welcome. Our 2yr old daughter loved it. She was captivated with everything from the koalas to the chooks to the very simple, yet very effective, tire swings.We will definitely be going back for years to come. This place rocks.

    We didn´t like at all the place. We went there in winter, and it´s not the best place to be at all in winter (July). The cabin was very cold, and the badroom facilities didn´t have heating at all.
    It was very unconfortable!.
    I wouldn´t recommend it!

    I just discovered Bimbi Park last year and it was an absolute gem. Great little spot with the Koalas, especially to base yourself for exploring the Otway area. I was not expecting the modern and high quality facilities that I found and Frank and Katrina are extremely helpful. Plus horse riding in the Park starts right here. I recommend this place to everyone.

    I came all the way from America to spend a week at Bimbi Park, and had an incredibly terrific time. Koalas all over the place, kukaburras, horseback riding, archaeological sites (I am an archaeologist), fishing, and close proximity to rain forest attractions and great restaurants. Don’t miss it!

  132. 42 Lynne
    Sep 27th, 2009 at 11:52 pm

    Our cabin was very comfortable and well equipped and the site was very relaxing after enduring the dreadful Black Saturday in Melbourne it was a welcome retreat. Of course the highlight for us had to be the koalas, especially the mother carrying her baby, a site not seen in the trees of the UK!!

    The koalas are friendly, charming, and helpful, no wait, this is the management and friendly staff – silly me !
    Located all around the wonder full campsite, with modern facilities strewn throughout the mighty gum trees you will also find those cuddly creatures (the koalas of course …). Always a pleasure to stay at Bimbi, relax with the family, enjoy the bush walks, horse rides , the oceans, the peace and quiet, the stars at night. My kids still rate this as their number one (1) place to stay and holiday [ even beating some {not disclosing names} theme parks up in the north of the country ]. Kids enjoying themselves, and adults just relaxing, this IS the life we all need/want to get back to. Our family will continue to holiday in this number one place – Bimbi.

    We have used Bimbi Park as a base for walking the Great Ocean as a series of day walks. We thoroughly enjoyed the hospitality of our hosts. The park is in a delightful setting and we have been impressed on our return visits by the environmentally sympathetic development and improvements that have been made over the years. The excellent camp kitchen and lounge facilities suit our requirements admirably. A great place to stay.

    We are currently on a trip around Australia and have not found a place yet we love as much as our time at Bimbi Park! The Aussie Bush, Koalas, open fire and wide open spaces… can’t beat it. There are not many affordable places we can take our family of 6 – our favorite place to go.

  156. 18 Jake
    Sep 24th, 2009 at 1:01 pm

    I’ve used Bimbi Park on many occasions and have had only good experiences, with the staff, the Koalas and the weather! I recomend it to all my Overseas friends and visitors as a place to stay and enjoy what Victoria has to offer all in one location. I love it.

    What a treat – We are new to Australia, and having Koalas above our head was something so rare and special that we will not forget it! The park was wonderful -natural unspoilt and just what we and our friends needed! A great getaway, but still with all the amenities in great condition!

    Thanks Bimbi – you’re tops, and we will be back soon!

    Bimbi Park is the perfect spot to holiday with the family. Unless of course if you don’t like koalas. There are plenty of koalas at Bimbi and in the nearby Otways forest. Don’t miss Aire River while you’re there.
    It’s simply magical. The accommodation is extremely comfortable and very reasonably priced. Highly recommended.

  161. 13 David Waterhouse
    Sep 24th, 2009 at 10:11 am

    Great spot for everyone. Our group of 6 families have been going here for years. The kids have grown up under the canopy of the Gums and we have all explored the Otway Forest and coastal region many times using Bimbi as a home base. Hiking, fishing, swimming, lazing round the camp fire, walking, horseriding and a full experience of wildlife and extraordinary landscapes keep us coming back.
    All of us who have travelled extensively through Australia know that Bimbi is a rare place – you can’t find environments like this just anywhere.

  162. 12 Martin
    Sep 24th, 2009 at 10:10 am

    Bimbi Park – the best place to camp in the Otways. Horse riding here is a high-light. Their hens lay fantastic eggs and camp amongst koalas in the trees is a unique Australian experience.

  163. 11 Jan Gerard
    Sep 24th, 2009 at 9:54 am

    Our favourite place to camp in the world. Where else can you see & hear so many koalas! We have done tent, cabin and retro caravan there and loved them all. It is quaint, rustic, friendly, clean and top class toilets etc We take all our overseas visitors there. Also, access to the Cape Otway walks etc Could not get better hosts either!!!

    I will never forget the kindness of the manager . We’d enjoyed camping nearby at Blanket Beach. Then stopped by to check out the park for future reference. We asked if we could use the shower block! Not only did we enjoy a hot showers, but when we arrived home (Sydney) and discovered my husband’s toiletry bag had been left in the men’s shower block, the manager enthusiastically took the matter in hand. Given the park is quite remote, we received it with everything in tact about about a fortnight later.

    Management were very warm & friendly. They helped us when needed [all 12 of us]. Natural habitat , animals, flora and fuana. Koala sitting in tree at shoulder height amazed the 10 exchange students in our care. Rooms very clean & inviting. We have been back 3 times – more enjoyable in summer than mid-winter, however, I still can’t get used to the idea of coin operated hot water for showers, but coped with it. Overall score = 7 / 10.
