Bimbi Park is in Cape Otway, the centre of the Great Ocean Road and the Great Ocean Walk, an area of magnificent forests, beaches, secluded bays and spectacular coastline. It is sheltered among tall manna gums far away from the wearing noise of towns and traffic.
In the local Aboriginal language, ‘bimbi’ means ‘a place of many birds’ and the park’s bushland is alive with bird song.

Bimbi Park is a great starting point for beach walks
Short walks and car trips take you to beaches and rock headlands where the great Southern Ocean roars onto the shore, or to small safe sandy bays and beaches where children can swim and play. There are lots of longer walks in the magnificent forests of Otway National Park including “The Great Ocean Walk” Australia’s premier walking trail (www.greatoceanwalk.asn.au)
You can fish from the rocks and beaches, go scuba diving or visit historic Cape Otway Lighthouse built in 1848 to guide seafarers through the hazardous waters of Bass Strait. While the climate of Cape Otway is temperate and pleasant through most of the year, its beautiful and dramatic coast has a formidable reputation. Fifty vessels have sunk on this stretch of coastline with the Schomberg, Loch Ard, Eric the Red and the Falls of Halladale being the better known of them.
Bimbi Park is also a unique horse riding venue. Trail rides include some stupendous Otway scenery with rides on wild untouched beaches, along coastal cliff tops, through stunning bushland and to spectacular river lookouts. Rides are affordable and suitable for all age groups and levels of skill.
