Peaceful and comfortable
Quiet peaceful and very comfortable. We loved the morning parrot feeds, and so many animals about. Even in the dry conditions the land is beautiful and Blackwood is so lovely. We aimed to do much more locally but were so comfortable we just sat and watched the birds and enjoyed the peace and night skies. Highly recommend walking across the road to Whimwoid Winery. We really enjoyed our 3 day rest and will definitely stay again.

Nothing less then amazing! if your looking for a peaceful and relaxing few days away then this place is perfect. As soon as i pulled up to kookaburra cottage, i knew it was going to be a lovely stay, felt right at home and the surroundings were picture perfect with llamas, emus and wildlife around, making it that little more peaceful. the deck was lovely and a lot of room to enjoy activities what not. very private with beautiful views all round. The place is among a few other cottages in the Fern Gulley Retreat which i’ve stay at previously in a different cottage but kookaburra cottage was definitely the best of the best!! Leanne was very friendly with amazing customer service! Thank you so so much for such a beautiful stay!
I couldn’t recommend this place anymore.

Thoughtful host
Kookaburra Cottage was a very peaceful place to stay with a wonderful outlook over the grassland and woodland to the riverbank. Our host had thoughtfully provided items which we may have needed with the property being out of town.
The extensive verandah area was thoughtfully furnished and a wonderful place for u to read, eat, draw and watch the birds and other nature go by.
A bonus for us was that Whimwood Winery across the road opened on the Monday of the longweekend , so we walked up the driveway to taste and buy their wines.
Thank you
