Kookaburra Retreat is a completely private, self contained retreat adjoining our house and located on the very edge of Aussie bushland with abundant wildlife. Kookaburras will laugh with you and possums and wallabies may visit you at night. The resident brush turkeys often parade through for a visit and Chloe, our cat, is always up to greeting guests, looking for a pat and a cuddle.

If you are visiting family or friends, attending a local wedding, attending a course or just planning a family getaway, come and experience what Kookaburra Retreat has to offer.

Sit back, relax and enjoy the beautiful bushland, wildlife at your doorstep and the serenity it provides. If you like peace and quiet, this is the place for you.

Enjoy exploring the surrounding bushland and the many bushwalking tracks which are accessible from the backyard and within the area. The Great North Walk is very close by. Stop in overnight or stay longer and enjoy the many shorter walks on offer. Do as much or as little as you want. There is so much to discover and the stars shine so much brighter away from the city lights.

Berowra Waters and Brooklyn on the Hawkesbury River are only a short drive away.

The local shopping centre and restaurants are nearby for all your other requirements.

Bus services are available from the end of the street which can take you to Berowra Railway Station or within the local area. Courtesy buses are available to the local pub and RSL Club.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So peaceful Thank you Leah and Paul for making our wedding anniversary special, we really appreciated how well you looked after us. Kookaburra Retreat is a great place to stay, I can't think of anything more we could have wanted. Bush walks great places to eat and drink all within easy reach.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great little place. This was a great little place. Very clean & superior quality linens. The location is ideal & there was even a courtesy bus from the local tavern for dinner! Would thoroughly recommend a stay if you don't want to be in the heart of Sydney.
