We seen children feeding birds out of their hands and Koalas above the...

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...

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...
