We stayed here 5 yrs ago & found it a lovely little motel with gorgeous bushland setting. Upon our return again in August, it has been updated with modern bathroom & fresh paint. Clean, comfortable & great value, especially the scrumptious breakfast. Just love the setting ammongst the gardens & a gogeous little unspoilt country town. Lovely hosts & will... More

We were exploring the Atherton Tablelands and wanted to stay overnight in the quaint, heritage listed village of Yungaburra. Accordingly (as always!!) consulted with the trusty trip advisor and very pleased we did.... Kookaburra Lodge is a peaceful, centrally positioned small motel with very pretty lush gardens surrounding it. The rooms were basic but immaculate, and the bathrooms had HUGE... More

We booked very far in advance and therefore got an even better deal of $90 per night! Breakfast was an extra cost but again very good value for probably the best muffins outside of the US. Great service and clean, tidy room - much better than most motels. Not within walking distance to restaurants but in a quiet end of... More

Myself and my partner and our visitors from Ireland stayed here for one night. The rooms were lovely and comfortable, good amenities including makeup remover pads, I've never seen that before and thought it was a nice touch! They also do a very nice breakfast, the eggs were so fresh I thought they had their own chickens! The staff were... More

We were in Yungaburra ahead of time and the hosts were very helpful with early check in. The room was modest but very clean and comfortable. The ensuite was well equipped and the bath towels were more in line with luxury hotels. It is located just a short walk from restaurants and hotel for evening meals. Breakfast was optional and...

With a visit by family from down south we decided to take them to explore the Tablelands and decided to stay at the Kookaburra Lodge motel where we had stayed on a previous visit. We found the new owners Mark and Cindy very accommodating and they have undertaken a range of enhancements that made the stay enjoyable. We also utilised... More

We booked Kookaburra Lodge as a base to explore the Atherton Tableland area and found the Lodge to be much more than we expected - and at a very reasonable tariff. It is situated about 200 metres from the centre of Yungaburra Historical Village. The rooms are compact but well equipped - the bed was very comfortable and the shower... More

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
