Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Nice riverside walk just off the ocean road. I stopped off on the off chance and spent an hour going down the path. The manicured area is nice and then you are into a forest trail, which was a bit overgrown after 500 m or so. I saw 2 koala ( the first trees on the manicured area) and met a friendly swamp wallaby which was a bit of a novel experience for me. First time seeing either of these in the wild and really enjoyed it. There was a shop near the stop off but shut when I got there. Seen a few negative comments and don't really understand why, it is free, good parking, nice place for a stroll ( even if just to see the river and birds), and a decent chance to see koala or wallaby. I do however agree with one of the reviews that wildlife wonders up the road is excellent, so do give that a go.

Regular stop for tour groups on Great Ocean Road to spot koalas in the wild, but only worth it if passing. We drove up the dirt road couple km and saw three, although either high up or slightly far away. Far better experience at Wildlife Wonders futher along the road at Apolo Bay.

We saw only two Koalas sleeping, perched at the top of one tree although this is (a Koala Walk ?). The place is very grassy, wet & muddy from rains & forested. Signs warning of venomous snakes gives one the fear as you walk along, constantly watching your steps & advancing very carefully. There were some kangaroos near the entrance of the park - in the distance on an enclosed area, besides a caravan. The Kafe Koala and General Store were closed - up for sale . Frankly there isn't much to see here, not worth to make the trip all the way here . And risked getting bitten by venomous snakes!

We walked here for at least an hour...no koalas at all!
Better to spot them at Tower Hill, near the picnic area.
Or at Raymond Island, with also a nice free ferry ride!

We enjoyed the opportunity to stretch our legs while driving the Great Ocean Road to stop at this nature path, just off the highway and beside the tourist store. It is a very short walk on a dirt road with eucalyptus trees bordering the road, and if one looks way up high in the trees you might be lucky to see a koala or more sleeping. Would have been nicer to see the bears up close and personal, but at least we saw them in their native habitat.

Quite surprised to wines the koala at the entrance of the park. We spent so much time to film the cuties and then went to a wrong way to search for more koala and birds. We lucky to see koala and bird around there..

Even though they were hard to spot, we ventured up during the middle of the day in the rain, and managed to see 3 koalas within a couple kilometers of driving. The koalas were perched high up, but you can still manage to get a semi decent photo.

My wife and I visited this place as part of our holiday along The Great Ocean Road. We managed to see a Koala up on a gum tree.

Apart from that, there is not much to see here. We had a walk and left.

We were taken to this area by our guide. To be fair, he did warn us prior to visiting, that there had been little in the way of koala sightseeing that month. Thankfully we were taken to much better spot near Apollo Bay. So for us, this area was a thumbs down.
