Only stayed one night but was so surprised by this property! Gorgeous gardens and each room has a lovely outdoor area among the gardens. Lots of wonderful small touches. Flowers in the room, makeup wipes as part of toiletries, large fluffy towels. Kookaburra Lodge is great - their website does not do this property justice. Wonderful breakfast delivered hot to...

Stayed at Kookaburra Lodge for a few days recently. The owners Mark and Cyndi are just lovely and full of great ideas to do in Yungaburra. The room although small was perfect for our stay and we cooked on the Bbq both nights which was spotless. Mark has even provided plates and cutlery for us to use. The only problem... More

Mark was ready for us when we arrived and took us to our room. The gardens and surrounds of this small property are just beautiful. The bed was comfortable and all the usual amenities were supplied. Absolute luxury were the thick, thirty, white towels. Bonus a small bar fridge. Breakfast was good, leaning to natural produce but we would have... More

We hope we could have stayed longer but then again, with the travel timeline we have, a night at Yungaburra Village is all we can afford. A night it is and that's enough for us to say it's the HOME to be when you are planning to holiday in the area. Staffs are very friendly, rooms are tidy and warm,... More

Based I previous reviews mum and I booked here for a short stop over in Yungaburra. I'm so glad I did. It is set amongst a beautiful tropical garden with a lovely BBQ area in the middle. The rooms are average motel size and sufficient. Thought and care has gone into the decor and the bathroom appears to have been... More

The town hugely exceeded my expectations and Yungaburra was the perfect place to stay while there. The gardens are gorgeous and breakfast on the patio was perfect. Management was so friendly and helpful. Such a pleasant stay!

Lovely simple, clean and comfortable accommodation in a beautiful garden setting. Our room had a good sized patio overlooking the lush garden. The hotel is within walking distance of the local hotel and restaurants. Platypus viewing is a gentle stroll away. Town is well located to explore the Atherton Tablelands. Friendly and welcoming owners. Well worth a visit.
