Plus bus connections to anywhere in Canberra. EPIC is within walking distance.

Cook at home inside in the well equipped kitchen or outside under cover on the BBQ.

Cockatoo House has one bedroom with a queen bed, one bedroom with bunks, one bedroom with a double bed and a study with another single bed. A portacot is available.

Two living areas provide plenty of space. Plus there is a covered deck and fully fenced back garden.

The Canberra Attractions

There is so much to see in Canberra and lots of it is free! Don't miss Old Parliament House or the War Memorial Museum to get a close up look at our history. Visit the Australian National Museum, Questacon, the National Gallery of Australia, the Botanic Gardens and Lake Burley-Griffin. If you visit the High Court or Parliament House at the right time you will see democracy in action!

Other Places of Interest

Other things to see around the Canberra area are the Zoo, Gold Creek Village and Mt Stromlo. Plus, right on your doorstep you can explore the Mt Majura nature reserve and have a personal encounter with the kangaroos!


Rated 4 out of 5 by from All you could want We had a very enjoyable, although short, stay at Cockatoo Cottage. It was a great location, close to everything, but, in particular, to a lovely dog walk. The house, while not luxurious, had all we needed to be very comfortable, and much more enjoyable than a motel. The only criticism would be that for the price, sheets could have been provided.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice home in a quiet suburb We stayed for a weekend with our 8 yo King Charles Cavalier whilst visiting our daughter at ANU. House was comfortable, with numerous fans making up for the lack of aircon. Place was clean an welcoming, with plenty of room in the deck/ enclosed backyard for Rusty to hang out when we were not there. Sun room was bright and airy. An easy walk to the farmer's market on Saturday morning fixed us up with dinner which was a bonus.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very good property The house was clean and tidy. We had 4 adults and 2 children and found there was plenty of space for all of us. As the weather was very hot and humid the lack of air conditioning detracted from the overall experience. We would stay there again. Plenty of parks nearby to take our 2 dogs for walks.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Exactly what we needed Perfect location near showgrounds, space for dogs to exercise and play. Good undercover for preparation of show dogs, although sheds under carport stopped trailers being parked there. Plenty of house space for a group and easy for large group to have big network dinner together. Highly recommended Cockatoo house.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A lovely, comfortable property for a homely stay. Cockatoo House was a lovely place to stay in during the middle of our interstate move to Canberra. The yard was secure for our dogs, and they loved the space the backyard offered to run around in and the shade to snooze in. The house had good essential amenities that allowed use to keep a homely kind of routine, but could have done with some extra cooling to help the pedestal fans keep the house comfortable during the warmer months. Thank you for entrusting us with our lovely house. It made our interstate move that little bit more stress-free.
