How to get here

Kookaburra Creek is centrally located in South Australia. 274kms or 2.5 to 3hrs easy drive from Adelaide via Main North Road. We are 10kms north of Melrose, approximately half way between Melrose and Wilmington. Sign posted with a blue accommodation sign on mountain side. Follow the signs 1.5km up the dirt road.

The Retreat is accessible to all types of vehicles with care. The road is a little stony in places. Please drive at 20kms or less along the road, as there are many kangaroos along the way.

Genesis tour and Charter

If you need transport from Adelaide, the Genesis Tour and Charter pass Kookaburra Creek. They can cater for anything from the single person traveller, through to large groups. Download their time table and check their Fare Schedule.
