Kookaburra Creek Bush Retreat

Kookaburra Creek is a stunning privately owned property, offering accommodation, bush camping and a welcoming stay. We’re  just 10 kms north of Melrose, situated at the base of the majestic Mt Remarkable, in the Southern Flinders Ranges.

Our family run Retreat is 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.

This is your opportunity to experience some memorable time in a relaxed atmosphere with friends and family

Our Retreat is a bird watchers and nature lovers paradise. Perfect for Family get together, Reunions, Work Retreats, Bushwalkers, Church Groups, School camps, Youth camps and Scouts.

The Melrose to Wilmington Rail Trail bike track passes the property, giving a pleasant, easy ride into town. Our neighbouring Willowie Forest has a network of bike riding and walking trails being developed.

Whether you’re visiting for an adventurous Hiking trip, Mountain Biking, or to just simply unwind and relax, Kookaburra Creek Retreat offers a unique, peaceful, down to earth holiday, away from the rest!

A secret hideaway, waiting to be discovered….

We offer a range of self-contained accommodation types, with several dwellings to suit either individuals, couples, families or groups.

Some lovely guests who stayed with us at Kookaburra Creek went exploring just out on the Willochra Plains. They discovered this interesting fellow near Amyton, and after some research found out it's an Australian Bustard. I've never seen one before, and I don't think they're very common this far south?

Chuck N StaceFrom my understanding they use to roam these parts. Of course hunted for food then numbers dwindled and they became a rarity. Over the last 4 years ive seen them slowly returning to the area. This year has been the best population for about 40 years give or take. They are more commonly known accross the top end WA, the NT and QLD. Some small population in NSW. With any luck and untouched it'll be good to see them repopulate.

Kookaburra Creek Retreat Bird Song
I am excited to say that I am now submitting to the 'Aussie Backyard Bird Count App!'
At Kookaburra Creek Retreat the morning bird call is so impressive, and if you've been lucky enough to have stayed here, especially in Spring, you'll never forget that beautiful sound!
I have also purchased the 'Micheal Morcombe and David Stewart EGuide to Birds of Australia' App, to help me identify the different species. The App has great descriptions, pictures and also the bird sound...a fun new interest of mine, which has developed over the years, from having the amazing opportunity of living at Kookaburra Creek!
What birds can you identify from this video? Ignore the crow who video bombed my film :/
