Kookaburra Park

Kookaburra Park is a scenic destination in Lake McDonald and is worthy of a visit if you’re looking for somewhere new to take the kids for a day in nature.

The park serves as a jump-off point for one route in the Noosa Trail Network, which spells the beginning of an adventure for many visitors, including walkers, runners, mountain bike riders, and horse riders.

The basic facilities here include a car park and toilets. Still, there is plenty more in the Lake MacDonald Park area, where there are more recreational facilities to enjoy, such as BBQs, shelters, and picnic tables.

Visitors who appreciate the outdoors and water sports will have a great time in the vicinity. Kookaburra Park is so close to the lake itself that the kids can enjoy the playground for hours of fun. Meanwhile, a fishing platform is located not too far so the adults can unwind with some fishing. Motorised and paddle craft vessels can be launched right from here.

If you want to get active, try the trail, which takes you from Kookaburra Park to Mary River Cod Park, a leisurely 1km walk each way. It’s an easy walk and providers a glimpse into the rainforest though you’ll also be treated to views of Lake MacDonald.

That’s not all you can do right from here: Noosa Botanic Gardens are just next door. They boast of stunning gardens that are well-kept; there are also sculptures, hundreds of birds, and a fern house. Don’t miss the Greek-style amphitheatre where regular performances take place.

Stop by the charming town of Cooroy on the drive home, where you can refuel from one of the several fantastic eateries around town and grab a coffee. Alternatively, you can also check out Jabiru Park, a scenic setting where visitors can go wildlife spotting from the Fearnley Bird Hide.

Kookaburra Park and its surroundings are gems for nature lovers.
