Was fantastic, camp sites really dispersed so you can have privacy and enjoy the beautiful sorrounds of your camp. Each location has lovely views. Well maintained. The waterfall it's self is amazing, I did hike/climb down for photos ect , it is dangerous also snakes so gotta be prepared physically and careful of snakes if you wanna do that.

Wonderful property beautiful views with plenty wildlife kids had an absolute ball. Was great being able to collect wood to keep warm at night. We also got to make our way down and do some fossicking. Also have the water buffalo there was great sight. Michael was great host and can point you in direction of what your after and would highly recommend anybody coming here to experience it for themselves.

Absolutely incredible place- as good if not better than a national park with so much to explore. A must stay if you are in the area! Even if you're not in the area, it's worth going out of your way for 😆 Thanks so much Michael for a great time.

Our favourite hipcamp so far!!! (We've stayed at a lot!) We absolutely loved our stay at Michael's beautiful property. Unfortunately it got cut short due to bad weather rolling in, but we will definitely be back! The property is quite remote, just how we like it! The falls are stunning and the creek leading up to it is very serene. We loved the idea that Michael has made down by the creek a day use area so that the area is fairly used by all campers. We were amazed with the flushing loo with a spectacular view in such a remote location it was definitely a welcomed luxury. There's lots to offer at this property and I'd recommend staying a few days to make the most of it. Michael is a very friendly host who is happy to talk to you about the property and surrounds. We appreciate that you have opened your property to hipcamp otherwise we would never of known this stunning slice of wilderness existed .

Quiet & tranquil camp spot
Stunning spot, we were the only campers that night. So quiet, a loo with a stunning view & a lookout point to enjoy (if you don’t mind getting a bit wet crossing the river!) We will definitely be back!

Private, spacious camping
We loved camping here. We had space, privacy, abundance of fire wood, amazing views & lots of adventure. Loved the wildlife. Especially the water buffalo. Even went fossicking & found some beautiful quartz. Looking forward to returning.

Amazing wild country camping
I would be happy to recommend this spot. Magic views. The camps are well spread out so it’s like you have your own piece of the property. The crystal clear creeks are just amazing to walk take in all their beauty. If your thinking of going do it you want be disappointed. Michael is more than happy to answer any questions you may have.

Mountain Camp
Had a lovely 2 night stay on site 1. Did the loop walk to the waterfall lookout and saw platypus and water dragons. Wore our gum boots to cross the river. Had an awesome campfire each night and did some star gazing. Spent a full day at Nuggety fossicking in the creek. Beautiful rough mountain terrain with great lookouts. Michael was very welcoming and helpful. We will definitely be back.

Astounding pocket of nature, well worth the drive. Beautiful aspect, quiet, native birds & wildlife. Amazing waterfall, swimming hole and creeks to explore. Fire pits & plenty of firewood to collect. Michael is a great host, very friendly and helpful.

Off the beaten track gem...
Such a beautiful patch of paradise - I love secluded camping, which is rarer to find with pooch in tow (no more nat parks) kookakburra was perfect... waterfalls, grass trees and rocky outcrops to boot... definately a 4wd only spot (which makes it even better)... I will be back for sure to explore more walking tracks and gorges...

Rugged and beautiful !
Had a great time at Kookabookra Falls. The falls are spectacular and the scenery over the ranges is awesome. Probably best not to let small children wander as there are some very steep drops and deep waterholes. Michael welcomed us at the gate and guided us to our site, he also gave us information on the highlights and best things to do, and we would suggest it is only suitable if you have an a high clearance "all wheel" or 4WD. We visited Nuggety and panned for gold (lots of specks - unfortunately no nuggets for us : ) although the track probably isn't suited to the 4WD BMW or Mercedes brigade. We also looked for gems at Pinkett (about 20 mins away) and didn't find our fortune there either ! Great fireplaces and heaps of firewood close to the camp sites (we needed it as it got down to -4 overnight !!!). Would definitely recommend for those looking for an escape from the everyday in a rugged and beautiful location.

A ruggedly beautiful, remote property, completely away from it all. We were very lucky and had the whole place to ourselves. We stayed at site 1, right next to the falls and had such a relaxing time. Michael is great host who went out of his way to ensure we enjoyed our stay. The flushing toilet overlooking the valley was a lovely, unexpected touch. I highly recommend Kookabrooka Falls to anyone who wants to disconnect from technology and reconnect with nature.

Remote Paradise
Kookabookra Falls is a remote paradise. It has been heavily impacted by rain but several sites are up and running and are absolutely beautiful. Especially site 1 where we stayed. Right next to the falls and within easy walking distance of beautiful cascades surrounded by gorgeous sub tropical bush land. The flush toilet is also a highlight. Definitely for serious campers, its rough terrain, pretty remote and access can be tricky if it’s wet but Michael checked in on us daily and even provided wifi up the hill so we could do daily check ins to home. Plus our doggos had a ball. Would absolutely recommend a visit.

We loved the tent camping at kookabookra falls, the land was amazing and peaceful, Micheal was one of top host I’ve met in life even tho there was problem with us geeting into site, he happily suggested different options and helped us to get to site safe and sound. If you looking forward to get away from city, disconnect yourself from daily life and connect yourself with mother of nature this is the right place for you. Go and enjoy the spectacular views from different lookout point, fresh river water ending to huge waterfall and don’t forget the farm animals

Nuggety and the Falls are beautiful
Property was beautiful and we just got our trip in before the weather turned. Our dog loved running around. Took a drive to nuggety and a walk to the falls and both were great. Highly recommend! Michael was very friendly and accommodating.

Perfect family bush camp
Kookabookra Falls is a remote oasis. The creek is amazing to swim in and even spot a platypus of your lucky. The trip down to Nuggety is well worth it not just for the fossickers (plenty to find). Michael has done a sensational job. Remote bush camping with water and toilet available. Doesn’t get much better

Fabulous bush camp
A real privilege to share Michael’s piece of paradise. We camped in splendid isolation over Christmas at site 9 - on top of the hill overlooking trees and yet more glorious trees. Wonderful walks, wildlife and bird watching opportunities. 4WD definitely recommended on such steep country and need to be self-sufficient away from the sites near the magnificent waterfall.

Magical stay
Wow, where to begin…Michael’s property is a hidden gem. We camped at site 1 & 2 right near the falls and it was magical. There is lots to explore, Michael is a genuine host and we had everything we needed for a relaxing two nights. 4x4 was necessary to explore the property and we got to fossick, swim and spot platypus. We can’t wait to go back!
