My husband and I came for the Great Ocean Road Running Festival. The cabin had everything we needed for our stay before and after the half marathon. Bring your food and you are set. The scenery is spectacular and there are koalas and whales nearby!

This campsite is in between Apollo Bay and Lorne on the Great Ocean Road. There is a cafe/shop just outside the campgrounds and across the main road is a beautiful beach. We stayed here in a powered spot with our camper trailer for almost 2 weeks. It is a nice quiet park, where you will hear the waves crashing on...

My family (2 adults and 2 young kids) stayed for 2 nights in a cabin in early April 2017. So my comments are to be taken in the context of a cabin stay, not camping (sorry, I'm too much of an urban animal). The cabin was reasonably well equipped, with kitchen utensils, linens for the double bed and a small...

We stayed at Kennett river holiday park in march. We were very excited because we'd heard great things. I must say I was very underwhelmed. The site was tiny. The toilets were very dirty most of the day. There were only two showers in our block. The tourist buses rolled in all day long to stop at the cafe (...

We camped using a camper trailer and had a terrifc spot in row A along the beach side. With the waves lapping on the sand it provided a beautiful spot to relax. The park is full of wildlife from rosellas, blue wrens to kookaburras and king parrots. There are resident koalas as well to spot amongst the gums. The park...

The site was extremely small. It was crowded and noisy. If the drunken bogans and screaming kids was not enough - masses emerged from tour buses and trekked through the campsite searching for a glimpse of a koala, photographing campers too and queuing in lines of 30 or more people for toilets. Shame really because the Kennett river beach is...

My partner and I travelled from albury over the long weekend and we're lucky to have found this beautiful and clean park. After reading the reviews we were expecting koalas and birds, and that we certainly did by the bunch!!!! We bought some seed from the check in and were totally surrounded by King parrots and rosellas. The park was...

A nice rest stop with a small cafe. While resting, take a walk to the toilets and you can see the caravan park. Met a friendly couple who shared about their trip from Sydney. They have been on the road for 8 days. See the wild koalas on the trees. There were plenty of parakeets who will fly and land...

Just spent 8 glorious days at the Kennett and was so pleased to find it as natural and unspoiled as when I last camped there over 30 years ago. The amenities are basic but I found them to be always clean and well maintained. The staff were so friendly and welcoming. The multitude of different birds was terrific, the family...
