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...

Room was lovely and clean. Facilities good for the kids, laundry was dirty. Awful front desk staff, would not stay here again due to how un helpful and rude the lady at the front desk was. Requesting a later checkout due to terrible weather and car at the mechanic was to much for them, even though we had been happy... More

Great place to stay, staff are very friendly. Price was good as we travelled during peak season. Cabin was great was ideal for 3 adults and 1 toddler. The place was clean and has everything you need. Less stuff to pack. The park is Close to shops and a short distance to city centre of Geelong.

Small cabin for a family. We travelled in 8. The cabin that we booked was 3 rooms with double deckers. Not really amazing, just for a night here. Coles supermarket and K-mart were around 10 minutes away driving distant. We cooked here but the kitchen and living room was attached and too crowded for a family of 8. Nothing too... More

This is the second time we've stayed here. Booking and payments were efficient. We booked several cabins/units and they accommodated us well. Last time we were all together, but this time separated across the park. We much preferred our stay this time, being in a newer unit. Modern and clean.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
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. If water sports isn’t your scene then explore Geelong's Waterfront; a perfect place to take in the sights and sounds of Geelong. 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. Geelong Riverview Tourist Park offers the perfect place to begin or end your Great Ocean Road journey. Travel along one of the world's most scenic roads and discover the wonders of the Twelve Apostles, the Otway’s rainforest, Bells Beach and the Surf Coast. ... more   less
