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
In the local Aboriginal language, 'bimbi' means 'a place of many birds' and the park's
bushland is alive with bird song.
Bimbi Park also offers a unique attraction in its out door Theatre. Sit our amongst
the stars with the wildlife and enjoy free feature films and shorts during the peak
holiday periods. Pat and Cyril have lived at Cape Otway for years and know the Otway
Region better than anyone. They are always eager to share their information with
you, so feel free to ask about anything.
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.
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.
