My wife and I have stayed at the Kookaburra Lodge Yungaburra Qld many times before, but to our surprise this trip it has new owners. They have made this tranquil little lodge even better. Mark and Cyndy have made some subtle changes in the rooms to make them more comfortable. They both make you feel very welcome and nothing is... More

We stayed here in May this year and were delighted to find this motel. It has a very pretty location and garden, lovely hosts and provides superb value for money. The room was compact but perfectly setup to use the space and provide absolutely everything you need at a motel. A bonus was getting up at 6 in the morning... More

We normally would choose more upscale lodging, but this was recommended, so we stayed here. What a charming place to stay! This motel is basic, but very clean, and full of small nice touches such as plush towels or even a makeup remover. The owners (a young couple) are super friendly and very accommodating, and go above and beyond to... More

The room was spotless, the gardens are lovely, the owners were warm and friendly, and the price for the room was really reasonable. We saw a platypus in the creek that's 200 meters from the lodge! Highly recommended.

We used Kookaburra Lodge as our base to explore the tablelands for a few days. Had an amazing time, there is so much to see and do nearby. The room itself was fairly basic but suited our needs, the breakfast is reasonably priced and I would recommend the bacon and eggs. The deck areas outside the rooms are nice but... More

We just arrived back from Yungaburra and we stayed at the Kookaburra Lodge. I found the rooms to be very clean and comfortable. If you want to stay here, you need to turn left in the main street (after the pub). They are not very well signed, but I would highly recommend staying the money. Yungaburra is also a lovely...

We stayed here for one night while travelling from Port Douglas to Mission Beach. We wanted to see the Atherton Tablelands and visit the heritage areas in Yungaburra. The motel is small and quiet and set in a beautiful lush garden. The rooms are and clean tastefully decorated and we had a deck area overlooking the garden. The thing about... More

We stayed at Kookaburra Lodge for a couple of nights while we explored Yungaburra and surrounds. We thought it was a super little motel. The smallish rooms are clean and sparkling, and really well equipped, and provide everything for a comfortable stay. The little patio provided a great place to sit and cogitate, or eat the excellent breakfasts which are... More

We had been in Australia for a week. My wife waited in the car the grounds were beautiful and well maintained. She feared it would cost $195 a night for room. It was only $95! Honestly, we tried to stay at the Gables but it was booked. This place was next door and seems to be better. There seems to... More
