Look the owner is a really nice guy, very helpful and obliging...But The room is bereft of character, the little TV is difficult to see and the A/C Heating in other rooms is pretty noisy in my room. Sort of an intermittent dull throbbing. Annoying. The bed was very comfortable, the sheets towels and room sparkling and plenty of tea... More

Clean, comfortable rooms, with fresh flowers, a nice veranda for eating, talking, or playing games, helpful and friendly owners--and two rooms for the price we might pay for one in other places. It was a great spot for us and our two teenage boys. The garden is beautiful, and the location is great, just up a grassy hill from downtown... More

This is the 2nd time we have enjoyed a pleasant stay at the Kookaburra Lodge at Yungaburra. Our room was clean, quite and well maintained with an enjoyable outlook to the gardens. The staff are very friendly and made us feel at home. The village of Yungaburra is within walking distance with restaurants and interesting shops. The Yungaburra markets are... More

Kookaburra Lodge is located at the top of a gentle rise, within walking distance to a number of restaurants, a small number of speciality shops, grocery store, a spa, gallery and the platypus viewing platform. The motel itself is set in small tropical gardens with all rooms at ground-level. There is a communal pergola near reception where wi-fi can be... More

Spotless and well equipped rooms, with pleasant sitting out space, are set beside a pretty tropical garden. We were greeted warmly and shown an interesting breakfast menu, though we didn't sample it. Very good quality towels, nice local tea, lots of information - we really liked this motel, for reasons that boil down to feeling welcome. There are only twelve... More

We spent a number of days in Yungaburra and surrounds and used Kookaburra lodge as our base. Nice room with verandah overlooking the garden, nice room and comfortable room. Breakfast was excellent. Location meant easy walk to shops. Great place to stay.

Spent a night in this lovely little old world motel. Our room was at the back overlooking the lovely garden, our patio was 'bordered' by tropical plants and hanging baskets, the room was more than adequate, clean, comfortable and well presented. We found the owner/manager to be very helpful with both information about the motel, the local area and the... More

Loved this accommodation set in a lovely tropical garden. Clean room good bed. The staff were very helpful. Great location off the main road but in town. So nice & quite yet easy walk to town for a good selection of food.

Nice room, clean and comfortable. Michael was very friendly and knowledgeable. Lovely gardens. Nice to sit on the deck and watch birds. Walking distance to places to eat. We had provisions so did not get a chance to sample the breakfast. We would stay there again.

I've stayed at Kookaburra Lodge over the past 30 + years and the rooms used to be brightly decorated and the hosts welcoming. I haven't been for over 10 years now and sadly things have changed. I don't know if there are managers in there or the owners but the welcome was very different and the room we stayed in,... More
