Kookaburra Creek Bush Retreat

Kookaburra Creek is 10 kms north of Melrose, situated at the base of Mt Remarkable in the Southern Flinders Ranges. We are privately owned and family run, and set on 80 acres of picturesque bushland with Mt Remarkable National Park on 3 sides. Abundant in wildlife with so much natural beauty to be discovered and explored. An opportunity to experience some time in a relaxed atmosphere with friends and family

It is a bird watchers and nature lover’s paradise. Perfect for Family get together, Reunions, Work Retreats, Bushwalkers, School camps, Youth camps and Scouts.The Wilmington to Melrose Rail Trail bike track passes the property,
giving a pleasant easy ride into town.

A range of self-contained accommodation is available, with several dwellings to suit individuals, families or groups.

Things are progressing next door in the Mt Remarkable National Park!
This is the new 'Willowie Forest Carpark,' about 7kms north of Melrose. From here they are opening trails for bike riding and walking.
Some of you may have already ridden along the trails, for one of our bike ride- morning teas, as part of the Melrose Mountain Bike Festivals....
This is very exciting for us as the trail network is right next door to us!
They are naming one of the trails after us, The Kookaburra Trail, which will lead you right to our property.
You have the stunning Mt Remarkable as a backdrop, cross stoney creek beds and see many kangaroos and bird life along the way.
I'll keep you updated on the opening of this wonderful new opportunity, to enjoy the great benefits which our National Parks can offer us! Outdoor Education, learning and play!

"Remarkable Melrose"
Enjoying our Summer holidays around Melrose, Southern Flinders Ranges.
Who would have thought we'd be swimming in waterholes in the middle of Summer!
I love listening to the trickling of the mountain fresh water, as it cascades it's way over the creek stones.
Listening to an abundance of bird life, the squeals of joy from the kids having the time of their life......
Gazing up, I admire majestic, ancient old gums, towering over us, feeling the gentle sun's rays shining through and warming my face.
Melrose....my favourite place!

At Kookaburra Creek Retreat, the storm clouds roll away over the horizon. We watch the pretty colours form as the sun sets, and the lightning flashes embrace and capture the shape of the spectacular Cumulonimbus clouds.
After 98mls of rain the garden and bushland thrive, rain water tanks and dams are all topped up.
Time to go and explore the flowing creeks in Melrose with the kids!
