Our cosy secluded Kookaburra Cottage is perfectly situated near the Olinda and Mt Dandenong villages, as well as the National Rhododendron Gardens. Minutes drive to most of the beautiful wedding venues in the Ranges too. You have a wonderful treed and garden view even from the loft bed! Enjoy the generous breakfast hamper supplies at a time to suit you, and late checkout of 11am.
Nestled amongst the magnificent rhododendrons and camellias, Kookaburra Cottage is the ideal setting for relaxation and indulgence. A stunning elm tree shades the private deck, whilst the floor to ceiling windows offers spectacular garden views and an abundance of light.
Architecturally stunning, Kookaburra Cottage is set over two levels with the queen size brass and cast iron bed on the mezzanine level where it is cosy and warm. Relax in front of the gas log fire, curl up on the couch or stroll around the many paths of the established gardens.
Immerse yourself in the romantic ambience by soaking in the spacious and deep double spa. There is a CD player, TV and DVD player for your enjoyment and a fully equipped kitchenette for your convenience. Breakfast provisions including some local produce are included in your stay so you can stumble out of bed when it suits you.
An extra adult or child can be accommodated in a foldaway bed for an extra charge of $30.
Awaiting your arrival, Kookaburra Cottage will be warmly lit with soft lights so you can leave your stress at the door.
