I have stayed at the Kookaburra Motel or a number of years as it is very handy to the Markets on Saturday. It is a very welcoming, friendly, cool and clean almost beyond beilef. There is no better accommodation that Kookaburra Lodge. Breakfast is served and you can eat in the garden - so relaxing. Will be back in April...

We really enjoyed our two nights at the Kookaburra Lodge. Our hosts were very welcoming and had great knowledge of the area. The room was clean and extremely comfortable with everything we needed, including make-up wipes etc in the bathroom - very thoughtful. We loved sitting on our patio in the morning and evening and also enjoyed cooking on the...

My wife and I had a last minute stay in Yungaburra during our trip to Australia. The owners onsite were excellent, and very friendly. The rooms were clean, spacious and well appointed. The beds were very comfy, and the breakfast was delicious. Would recommend to anybody looking for a nice relaxing spot during your Australian vacation!

We have just had a lovely week end staying at the Kookaburra Lodge Motel. Lovely room & bathroom. And we really enjoyed having our breakfast on our little private patio facing the garden. Whilst the home made wood fired oven pizza's are a work in progress we did enjoy trying them out with a nice bottle of red wine. We...

My husband and I went to the Tablelands Folk Festival for the weekend and stayed at Kookaburra Lodge. The rooms are very clean with comfortable beds and it is in a quiet location. All rooms have a patio where you can sit and admire the gardens.. There were fresh roses placed in the room, a lovely thought. We have booked...

An green oasis in the heart of Yungaburra. The host was extremely helpful and knowledgable about the area, he arranged an extra large screen in the garden for all the guests to view the grand final. The rooms were small but it was the cleanest motel we have ever been in.

The website was easy to navigate. The staff were friendly and inviting. The room was comfortable and had everything I needed. This is the second time I have stayed there and I think it represents good value for money. I will definitely be coming back.

On site you get impression of being out away from everything, but it backs onto main street so very convenient. Family run and offers meals in room which were of high standard. Very clean and comfortable.

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...
