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

What a treat to be collected from the airport in Cairns by your hostess Marlies at five in the morning after an exhausting flight from Europe to Aussie! And an early morning dawn chorus from all the birds to add to this. What a wonderful place in the hills Kookas is. Both Marlies and Bruno will do anything for their... More

When you reach Kooka's Bed & Breakfast, the sign welcoming you reads "Kooka's: A Tropical Haven". It is...and so much more.

We were delighted with Kookas. The hosts, Marlies and Bruno, were friendly, generous and incredibly helpful without being in the least bit intrusive. Every morning we breakfasted with Kookaburras landing out the balcony beside us while we feasted on exotic fruit and lovely bread. The pool is bigger than the pictures make it seem and, though a bit cool at... More
