We stayed for 12 days in our tent and found the place, very acceptable. The camp kitchen is well maintained, although it was frustrating to use the hot plate and not being able to clean it properly, for the next person. The fridges are a welcome help, although on throwing out day, not all things are actually thrown out. There...

I was there during the week for work. The 1 bedroom cabin was perfect for my needs. There was even close parking for my small truck. The weather was hot, so the split system worked a gem keeping me cool at night. Also the well kept pool came in handy after work. Queen size bed was comfy and a good...

We booked a Standard Cabin for an overnighter to visit a sick friend. The cabin had everything we wanted; comfortable beds, hot water, shower, excellent kitchen equipment and crockery, quiet location. It would have been ideal for a riverside walk, if the weather had been better.

The cabin was a deluxe cabin, but it was far from that. Needs a complete paint inside, grout in shower was full of mould. The tiles in the bathroom were filthy as you can see by the pics. The beds were very comfy and the location was excellent. Had everything we needed, but dirty and in desperate need of some...

Stayed for just the one night on an unpowered site and had no complaints. The price was reasonable, with good facilities pleasant staff and management in the site evident. We would stay again if we were in the area. For us this was a stopover site on route to Melbourne. Showers and toilets were accessed through use of a key,...

Good and convenient for what we needed. Door key bit tricky but had security screen which was fine. Beds comfortable. Water good and hot. Psrking bit narrow but deep enough for carcaravan or 2 cars. Will recommend.

We stayed here for a night in a 6 berth cabin. Very clean, neat and modern. Cabin has reverse ac. Main with queen and TV. Second room has 2 bunks - only pitfall of this was that we couldn't remove the ladders so our youngest couldn't climb up, however I'm sure that is a safety requirement. Playground for the kids...

Geelong Riverview Tourist Park is located less than five minutes drive from the centre of Geelong and fifteen minutes from World Class beaches. The Great Ocean Road region offers surfer’s year round action with dozens of surf breaks along the coast including the internationally famous Bells Beach. Bells Beach is the home of the Rip Curl Pro Surf & Music Festival one of the world's longest running surfing competitions held in April each year. Swimming, sailing, boating, scuba diving and surfing are all popular pastimes in the region.

Take a stroll along the boardwalks to Cunningham Pier for family fun or pack a picnic and enjoy a day in the sun on the vast expanses of lawn at Eastern Beach. Visit the beautifully restored steam-driven, antique carousel, view public art on a waterfront walk and discover the many quirky Baywalk Bollards representative of the many characters who formed Geelong as we know it today. Uncover Geelong’s History and explore National Trust listed buildings. View a collection of outstanding Australian paintings and sculpture at the Art Gallery, explore Geelong’s darker side and take part in a ghost tour of the Geelong Gaol or learn about the history of wool at the National Wool Museum. Nearby, the Bellarine Peninsula is home to beautiful cool climate wines, superb restaurants, quaint cafés, fresh local produce, seafood and Sunday markets.

“Although I have ticked Loud for the noise level, it was not road noise and not of any fault of the people who run the park.”
