Situated on the world famous Great Ocean Road, Kennett River is secluded popular retreat for holidaymakers looking for a relaxing break from the hustle and bustle of daily life. Located 174 kilometres south-west from Melbourne, Kennett River is where you can see koalas in their natural habitat and chill out in tranquil surrounds.

Enjoy The Beauty Of Nature

Kennett River, on the Victorian Coast, is a part of the Otway National Park, an area renowned for its pristine bushland, fantastic surf and scenic coastal views. It's a great place to enjoy the beauty of nature and native Australian animals like the easy to spot koalas, wombats and wallabies that share this picturesque area.

There's no sign of shyness among the native animals at Kennett River, as they live side-by-side in local backyards and the nearby bushland surrounding much of the Great Ocean Road accommodation. Enjoy spotting kookaburras, brightly coloured Rosella and King Parrots. Down on the beach you'll often see seals and dolphins frolicking and, if you're lucky, the occasional whale passing by. The koala spotting area on Grey River Road is a great place to get up close and personal with these beautiful animals. Continue along this road into the depths of the Great Otway National Park to enjoy the temperate forest. At night this is a great place to enjoy the magical gleam of glow-worm colonies.

Pristine Beaches To Explore

Kennett River is located midway between the beautiful seaside towns of Apollo Bay and Lorne. Once at Kennett River you'll find the pristine beach safe for all the family to use, as it's one of the few ocean beaches in the area that's constantly patrolled. For this reason it’s a well used surf beach where locals join in the fun with visitors.

Bicycle Riding At Kennett River:

  • You can create your own riding loop around town, or enjoy a leisurely drive through the many scenic roads and four-wheel-drive tracks that are found throughout the National Park. Some of the tracks lead to the top of the mountain range which is a steep climb but well worth it, if only to experience the exciting ride back.
  • Mountain bike riding is a popular pursuit around Kennett River. There are trails that are suitable for all levels of experience and enthusiasm, with some of the trails considered the best in Australia.
  • No matter which direction you choose to ride along the Great Ocean Road from your Kennett River accommodation you can rest assured that it will be both breathtaking and memorable.

Kennett River Walks

Taking a stroll through the surrounding National Park area is an easy pursuit from your Kennett River holiday rental. There are many stunning beach walks, amazing tracks through the forest and if you're feeling really adventurous you can give the renowned 104-kilometre Great Ocean Walk a go.

If you're looking for relaxing, well-situated Great Ocean Road accommodation, Kennett River holiday rentals are a great option that allow travellers to enjoy their own space, privacy and amenities with rentals to suit every size and type of holiday group. Enjoy stunning coastal views and pristine, natural surrounds with access to your own kitchen, laundry, entertainment and garden to enjoy.

The cottage is secluded and you feel so far from town but really it's so close. Everything exceeded our expectations and will be coming back sometime in the future! The wildlife was absolutely amazing - loved watching the birds outside and being able to hand feed them. We also spotted a couple of koalas in the trees!

The cottages are beautiful - very well maintained and clean. The pet friendly accommodation suited us to tea and the daily walks to the beach were an added bonus. Can't recommend enough! Great for a peaceful and relaxing break away from the city!
