Geelong’s best located holiday park 


Barwon River Holiday Park is proudly family owned and operated by Ray and Lyn Garrow, who have owned the park for over 30 years. The 2nd generation – Marc and Kathryn – currently manage the park and have done so for the past 10 years.

“We love our industry and get so much enjoyment from our guests having a great time. Over the years we are always continually updating the park with new villas and cabins and bringing in new features and facilities so that our guests can keep making their wonderful memories.”

We are conveniently located only 2km from Geelong’s CBD and Waterfront Geelong, nestled on the banks of the Barwon River. Enjoy the relaxing atmosphere, beautiful natural attractions and wildlife on offer.

Our park’s quality shines through from the moment you arrive – clean, updated amenities with baby bath and change facilities, family all mobility access bathroom and a range of accommodation options to suit everyone. Accommodation options range from poolside villas and budget cabins, through to ensuite sites and lush green, shady, powered caravan and tent sites. We can accommodate and assist you with group bookings of all sizes.

Our holiday park is the perfect base from which to explore Geelong and it’s surrounds.
