From contacting the owners to checking out, everything about Kookaburra hideaway is amazing, the privacy of the location and the view to the layout of the kitchen and space available, everything exceeded our expectations.

“Authentic Hunter Valley experience”

This magnificent property has become a permanent fixture on our annual travel calendar. Our 5th visit to Kookaburra Hideaway was the best to date.
The location is simply unbeatable. Tucked away off Old North Road you immediately get a sense of peace as you turn down the gravel driveway and onto the property. The natural surroundings are blissful, yet still only a stone throw away from the Hunter Valley's main attractions.
It's a dreamy countryside setting with a stunning, gorgeous aspect which boasts breathtaking views out to the valley behind filled with grazing cows and kangaroos at your doorstep daily.
The fire pit is the perfect spot to sit around and enjoy the starry night sky on a cold winter's night with the days pickings from the local cellar doors.

The house itself is very impressive. With soaring high ceilings & glass doors from top to bottom and all around it really allows you to take in the unique surroundings and Australian landscape. It is very well equipped with huge bedrooms all boasting en-suite and spa bath and all the amenities you would expect. The kitchen is an entertainers dream and very well equipped. There is a huge comfy lounge with an indoor fire place, and an outdoor pool for summer visits.
Val & Andrew are warm and hospitable and take great care and pride in the upkeep of their property. They are always obliging and run a very efficient business. From booking to departure they take care of every detail and make it a seamless and easy experience.

Kookaburra Hideaway has become one of our favourite getaways in Australia, we feel very lucky that it is on our doorstep and in such a wonderful part of the world.
It truly is such a gorgeous place that allows you to get close to nature and experience the essence and beauty of the Hunter. When you sit back on that back porch (wine in hand of course!) and take in the beautiful views you'd never know with the vineyards were so close...
Look no further for a true country experience in the Hunter that no hotel resort could ever offer.
See you next year!

Wonderful place & well set out......Have stayed at a few places in the Hunter and this is in our top 2 so far.......In fact I think it won.
Very spacious and comfortable & clean......Love that all the rooms have their own on-suite. We will definitely be back......So worth it.

I booked Kookaburra Hideaway for my family of 11 to celebrate our first Christmas away together. I was impressed from the moment we approached the house! The house has a fabulous layout with large windows to enjoy the countryside views from every room. I loved the open plan kitchen/dining/lounge which opened onto a surrounding deck and down to the pool (which our family enjoyed all day long, every day). The owners, Val and Andrew, were wonderful to deal with prior to and during our stay, with Andrew even taking us on a wine tour at the end of our stay and taking delivery of our Christmas tree before we arrived. There were also surprising and greatly appreciated extras such as hand soap in each bathroom, ample dish detergent and things like cling wrap, aluminium foil & zip lock bags! Plus we were even able to bring our dog!
We loved our stay and will definitely be back!
