Stayed here twice while attending a wedding at Lake Tinaroo. An outstandingblittle gem right in the heart of Yungaburra. Walking distance to the pub and cafe. Mark and Cindy are great hosts. The setting is sensational. We will be back.

This is our second stay at this hotel. It is perfect if you're in Yungaburra to busy yourself with other activities. It's not the hotel to hang around in as there's is no pool area but the garden is lovely and each room has its own outdoor area and setting. We stayed here for 3 nights as we hiked, kayaked... More

We recently visited the Atherton Tablelands and stayed at the Kookaburra Lodge. It was very inviting and the hosts were very accommodating. The breakfast was delicious and severed to us at our room which overlooked their wonderful garden. We would highly recommend the Lodge and what is has to offer.

Very convenient, but very quiet. Had great sleep in very comfortable bed. We love Yungaburra and this lovely clean quality accommodation was set within a gorgeous and well cared for garden of flowers, shrubs and trees.

Love staying here and we do it often for weekend getaways. Quiet little spot and you feel like you're miles away from everything. Nothing is too much trouble for the very friendly owners Mark and Cindy. Very clean and lovely gardens. Great breakfasts too!

We stayed for 3 nights in July 2016 for a mini break in the tablelands. We used Yungaburra as our base to explore and Kookaburra lodge was a great spot for that reason. We arrived pretty late at 9.30 but they were still v accommodating. We were offered breakfast options and daily room cleaning which we didn't need. The the... More

Kookaburra Lodge is centrally located in the Tablelands. The lodge is fairly small, which adds to its charm. It's obvious that the owners take great pride in their lodge. The rooms have a fridge and large bathroom, with a hairdryer and ironing board as well as coffee and tea making facilities. If you want breakfast, simply indicate on a form... More

Beautiful little room, great service. Ideal location for a relaxing get away. First time in yungaburra, first time at this resort. Very impressed. Optional choice of breakfast, highly recommend having breakfast. Nothing like freshly squeezed orange juice and perfect eggs. All in all 5 out of 5 and very cheap. Will deffinately be back

We stayed just one night. Very quiet spot tucked away but just up the street from the local pub and shops. We had the end room and were very happy with the room. Close to nature. Woke up to the sounds of birdsong. Very friendly service. Would definitely stay again.
