Kookaburra Corner, a few minutes stroll from the beach, has loads of charm with its high wooden ceilings, floorboards and winding staircase. It is inspiring to the creatively inclined and a fun place for families to enjoy a peaceful holiday with wide grassy play areas all around.

Kids are welcome to play the old honky tonk piano and there is a good electric

upright piano for ‘pianists’!

Mackerel Beach, a ferry trip from Palm Beach, feels like a remote island – no shops, road traffic or public facilities, so no tourist crowds!

The House

This two storey cedar cabin has the perfect layout for all occasions. It suits a couple on a romantic escape, artists or musicians seeking an inspirational retreat or families with kids & grandparents wanting a fun beach holiday.

The lower level enters to the dining area which is open plan to a good sized kitchen and is just perfect for the chef to chat to guests whilst cooking up a storm and sipping champagne or having a cuppa.

The property offers multiple living and entertaining areas with the lounge room doors opening straight to the back patio and bbq area. This is where you will most likely meet your wildlife friends, wallabies, possums and of course the kookaburras as well as an abundance of other birds that will greet you in the mornings and drop in around dusk.

There is also a central room to relax and watch a DVD or a movie on the VCR player. That's right the old fashioned VCR is still going!! There are some great classic movies to choose from as well as the usual favourites and kids movies.

The bedroom downstairs is at the front of the house, has it's own entrance and can be closed off to the main areas so is perfect for an afternoon nap or for the inlaws. It offers a queen size bed and has it's own ensuite with shower & toilet.

The main bathroom downstairs has a tropical feel with the banana trees surrounding the louvre windows. There is a large vanity, shower & toilet and even a bidet for the European visitors. The laundry is also in this room if you feel the need to do some washing while you are on your holiday!

Up the winding staircase to the second level you will find two more bedrooms. There is a choice of the bedroom with two single beds and some fabulous vintage National Geographic magazines on the bookshelf that is an artwork in itself or the other loft style bedroom offers a double bed with a quirky ensuite with shower & toilet.

This house was built by a family of artists and has an eclectic charm and a good old fashioned feel. Just sit back, relax and enjoy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This property is beautiful. My family and I stayed at Kookaburra Corner in June and the property is lovely. It has a warm and inviting atmosphere with plenty of space. There were six of us so It was great to have three bathrooms!!. We happened to be at Great Mackerel Beach when Sydney experienced "the worst weather it has seen in years" but it still didn't manage to spoil our fun. The house is well equipped. A home away from home. We will be back.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Family Friendly Relaxation What an excellent spot for a family getaway. Beautiful beach with loads of places to explore for my nature loving son and family. Fishing, wildlife, walking, relaxing all in abundance at this place. Fantastic friendly community added to the perfect long weekend for us. Return celebration for my father who has such fond memories of his family home. The "mod cons" available but hardly necessary. Beaut spot to enjoy time with my family. Thankyou Kookaburra Corner for providing the perfect layout for our varied and extended family. Catered perfectly for my 80 year old Dad down to my 13 year old son. Great Mackeral Beach holds many memories and cannot wait to return to create more. Kind regards, The Tombs/Parrish/East family.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful stay We had a lovely time at this house. We were 2 families with young kids. The kids had a ball at the beach and in the house which was really well set up for kids, with toys, DVDs, local wallabies and bush turkeys and a great open grassed area just outside the front door. Lots of towels and linen, clean, cosy and a beautiful location. For an old fashioned easy beach holiday it was perfect.
