Very friendly and accommodating hosts and what a fantastic location, only 10 minutes out of the city with great views of the city, mountains and water. The room was spacious, clean and just perfect. Would happily stay there again on next visit to Cairns.

We had five wonderful days staying at Kookas B & B waking up in the morning listening to the Kookaburras and watching Marlies feeding a pair who come to the the house each day. Kookas offers first class accommodation, delicious breakfast with fresh fruit, cold meats and various breads. Marlies and Bruno look after their guest extremely well.

Very special place, peaceful and relaxing. Wonderfully welcomed by the hosts, the room is comfortable and "right in the middle of the rainforest".
