On the outskirts of Cairns this B&B is in a lovely position amongst a very lush garden. It is up an exceedingly steep drive which is not for the faint hearted, but worth it. Everything was done to perfection even to the extent of the Kookaburras sitting on the fence after breakfast. You will need to drive to restaurants etc.

We stayed at Kookas at the beginning of our three week first time visit to Australia and New Zealand. We couldn't have been happier that we chose Kookas. We stayed four nights and each morning we enjoyed the fabulous view from their deck as we ate tropical fruits, breads, cereal and sipped our coffee/tea. Marlies was extremely helpful in getting...

After busy Hong Kong and a 7-hour flight to Cairns it was very relaxing to settle down for a 4-nights stay at Kookas B&B. Living in a flat country like Holland we looked a bit scary at the steep driveway at first but soon got used to that. Once up you are confronted with a beautiful scenery reaching to the... More
