Get Into The Wild, With a Stay at Kookaburra Chateau

Kookaburra Chateau is nestled amongst bushland about 20 minutes outside of Lake Macquarie, where you’ll be surrounded by nothing but the tranquillity of nature. Waking up to birdsong, bathing under the stars, and walking barefoot in the bush – this is a back-to-nature glamping experience that’ll have you wanting to stay forever.

With expansive decking, a campfire, a large bell tent, and an outdoor bath, you’ll have two nights to soak up the outdoors and truly rewild yourself thanks to our mates at Into The Wild.

Experience Sunset from a bird’s-eye view, with Skyline Aviation Helicopter Flight

With panoramic views encompassing the lakes, the vast ocean, and the seemingly endless rolling hinterland, Lake Macquarie reveals its true magnificence when observed from the skies. Thanks to our friends at Skyline Aviation, you and one lucky mate will have the opportunity to savour the sunset from the ultimate vantage point through a Lake Macquarie Sunset Helicopter Flight.

During this enchanting 25-minute sunset journey, you’ll traverse from the breathtaking Lake Macquarie, tracing the coastline towards the picturesque city of Newcastle. From Blacksmiths to Nobby’s Beach, you’ll witness the sun gracefully lowering itself behind the Watagans and Mount Sugarloaf in the western horizon.
