'Self Catered Accommodation'

The space
Kookaburra Creek is 10 kms north of Melrose, situated at the base of Mt Remarkable.
Our privately owned/family run Retreat is set on 80 acres of picturesque bushland.
Abundant in wildlife, with endless natural beauty.
There are easy, short walking trails on our property. The Melrose to Wilmington Rail Trail bike track passes the property, giving a pleasant easy ride into town. There are also a network of Walking and Bike Trails being built in the National Park, right next door!
Our Retreat offers a variety of unique and creative accommodation options available for couples, families or groups. We can sleep up to 20 people, more if sofa beds are used or you bring along your camper vans and tents!
For more info on our Retreat and our other accommodation types please visit our website. 'Kookaburra Creek Retreat.'

Guest access
Guests can have an outdoor fire in the fire pit right next to the Bus.
(To be used during non Fire-Ban season only. 15th April- 1st Nov)
Campfire wood can be purchased from us for a small fee.
Guests can feel free to explore our 80acre property. There are a couple easy, short walks, ranging from 30-45mins return.

Other things to note
• We prefer a 2 night stay, but you're welcome to enquire about one night if required.
• Our accommodation is family friendly. Please don't add children (under 12yrs) when checking price.
• Please note that the Bus ceiling isn't real high. If you're over 6 foot high you will need to duck while inside. This shouldn't be a real issue, as the dining/camp kitchen area is outside the Bus under the shelter. Inside is more so bedroom/sleeping space.
• The Retreat is accessible to most types of 2WD vehicles if driven with care.
The road is un-sealed and a little rough and stony in places. Please drive at 20kms or less along the road, as there are many kangaroos along the way.
• There is a mud-map in the Bus photo gallery. This can be helpful in finding the Bus easily, especially when arriving on dark.
