First thing we noticed was how extremely filthy the aircon filter was..after cleaning it i then noticed that it was the only aircon that... More

We have just left after a two month stay at Kookaburra our seventh of similar duration. We have always enjoyed our Holidays at this Park as the people around us are friendly. Rod and Leonie and staff are always friendly courteous and ready for a chat. The Park is an easy walk to the shops, Jetty, Hotel and IGA supermarket.... More

We stayed 3 nights in a hotel unit and quite enjoyed our stay. All of the staff and other holidayers were very friendly and welcoming. The owners both went out of their way to ensure we were comfortable and told us of things to do locally. The unit was clean and cosy and offered everything we needed for our stay.... More

This place is SOOOOOOO good. Staff went out of their way to help and the place was nice and clean ( this was a blessing after the other place in Cardwell) Recommend this place to anyone, especially family/groups. The owner was a real down to earth guy who gave up his time to help sort out our drama with our... More

Stayed in the villa for a couple of nights and really enjoyed my stay. The management and staff are really friendly and helpful. Good to see all the facilities are all clean and the grounds too. Thank you kookaburra for a wonderful experience.

We stayed in a motel unit for one night and that was enough. We did not eat or have food there, but by the time we went to bed we noticed heaps of ants running all over the bedside unit - yuk! I know this is part of life in the tropics and you don't leave anything to entice them,... More

This a small C/Park situated in Cardwell between the Bruce Highway and Railway Line. You would think it would be noisy but in truth it isn't. There is only about 4 t rains a day with one late at night and you hardly notice it. The Park offers cabins and both powered and unpowered sites at a reasonable price and... More

I visited here with my boyfriend intending to stay a couple of nights as a stop over on our holidays and ended up staying a few nights longer. After hearing about the great fishing spots in Cardwell, we decided to give it a go. Kookaburra seemed like a good place for us to stay and it completely exceeded our expectations.... More

I stayed at the Kookaburra for 4 1/2 months working at the nearby Banana farm and loved every minute. Cardwell is one of the most beautiful towns on the East coast perfect for fishing or a bit of peace and quiet with amazing views of the surrounding countryside and endless sandy beach. There also several nearby creeks that are definitely... More
