Kookaburra Cottage is a fully self contained mud brick cottage with all modern amenities plus a wood fire, beautiful views and is situated right in the heart of the Yarra Valley. Healesville sanctuary, wineries or the Warburton trail are all within easy reach but you will need a car.
We thought it best you hear it from someone who has stayed........
The mud eco cottage was awesome! It was quaint, cozy, picturesque, tidy & efficient- we can't say enough. The views from the cottage, of the surrounding hills & valley in this particular area of Australian (wine country) was both spectacular and soothing. The "local" birds ( kookaburra, parrots, a huge white Cockatoo and several other colorful species) made such beautiful sounds & were in full view. The grounds had the most amazing floral gardens ... Truly a tranquil setting for the nature lover. We enjoyed the local experience of shopping/ eating in the local markets and near by was the towne brewery. As for the touristy aspects, so close to the local vineyards, chocolatiers, Botanical type Gardens were nearby, homemade ice cream, cheese/dairy farms, a flower /Alpaca farm, the list goes on. Healesville was close by w/ a wildlife sanctuary, we ventured on a historic train ride & poked around in the shoppes. We did it all in a relaxed manner & right at our doorstep. This was a sight unseen choice and has become our best kept secret shhhhhh- When we return to Australia this will be our go to stop. For us, close to nearby family and the bounties of the surrounding valley! It has a lot to offer in the ideal location...
Guests will have there own parking and full use of the cottage and kitchen to themselves. There is also a wonderful area to sit and enjoy the views
