Our school has been coming to Camp Kookaburra for years and each year the experience has been even better than the year before, which is testament to Charles and Kate and their staff’s commitment to continuous improvement. This year COVID and lockdowns made organising camp very challenging, including cancelling and rescheduling, but it was always easy to communicate with Charles and make decisions – he is very responsive and prompt with passing on information. As soon as we arrived, we could all relax because the staff took care of everything. Nothing was too much trouble and the staff go out to their way to ensure camp runs smoothly. The children are safe and well cared for and they love all the facilities they can use. We feel so lucky that made it on camp this year – our students and staff had an absolutely fantastic time and I could not recommend this camp and the staff more highly.

When I came here for my School Camp I had never been here and didn't know what to think. The staff, Facilities, Cabins and the food was/were amazing. It's been over 2 years but I still remember it to this day from Our School Talent show there to everything else like what more could you expect!! Everyone else that stayed there with the Camp Loved it too and it was a Highlight of that year. Thanks to everyone there on behalf of Quarry Hill Primary School, Bendigo

Thanks again- 

Given the recent challenges Victoria has faced over the past year, we were ecstatic to offer our Year 7s a camp in February to Camp Kookaburra. Every year Kate, Charles and their staff update and improve the camp,  and this year was no different. The facilities are amazing, the activities are interactive and challenging and the staff simply can't do enough to accommodate our requests.  Kylie is fabulous in ensuring dietary requirements are met, and the foot is great. All the staff are fabulous and know first hand what it's like to run a school camp. Honestly, you could not find a better camp- highly recommend!

We have been attending Camp Kookaburra for a number of years. Each year is better than the last! Kate and Charles and their team have made a concerted effort to upgrade their facilities each year. We look forward to returning next year too see the pool upgrade. We can highly recommend the camp due to their amazing facilities and friendly staff. Each staff member ensures they treat each and every student with respect. The staff are very professional and support individuals to overcome their fears whilst also further developing their independence and confidence. The food prepared by Kylie/Leanne is definitely a highlight! We cannot thank you enough. See you next year.

We have been going to Camp Kookaburra for a number of years now because it presents such a great experience for our Grade 4's. Charles and Kate are always very welcoming, friendly and willing to help out in any way they can. They have improved the facilities enormously since they took over, with the rooms very clean and well looked after and the food always satisfying, our staff members always look forward to the delicious meals that are presented! No complaints from the kids, ever, means that the kitchen staff are doing an excellent job. Thanks very much for the patience, care and encouragement that all of your instructors regularly give to the children. Looking forward to next year!

The Management at Camp Kookaburra should be very proud of their beautiful facilities. Clean and tidy cabins, space friendly, immaculate indoor/ outdoor settings and age appropriate camp activities.


The students had a wonderful time. With all the delicious food, they were never hungry. Many thanks goes to Charles, Kate and the team, who made us all feel so welcomed and made the camp so enjoyable for our students. We can’t thank you enough for the amazing experiences and memories our students have taken home with them.

Thanks again for such a wonderful camp. It was probably the least stressful camp that I have ever been on. The activities were excellent and you all made us feel very welcome. I hope that you all got a little break and your family is all well. Nicky was a delight and our children enjoyed getting to know him.

In all my years of being on camp this was the best camp I have ever been on.  We were looked after so well and the children had a ball.  Many thanks.

Just a quick email to say a huge thank you for accommodating us on camp last week.  We all had a fabulous time and the kids thoroughly enjoyed the experience.

As always, your staff were very welcoming and supportive of our students, and most of all followed the safety procedures and spoke politely to the students.
