In your words...
SOUL CENTRED YOGA RETREAT
The four day Yoga retreat was most peaceful, insightful and healing experience I ever had. The shared accommodation was comfortable and vegetarian meals were absolutely fabulous; home made exquisitely prepared cousins.
The days were fully scheduled with yoga, meditation, bush walks, healing fire ceremony's and many more soul nurturing activities.
Mandy and Robert are remarkably skilled in all aspects of Yoga and share their knowledge with love and attentivness.
I am very grateful for such a wonderful retreat, set in a beautiful pocket of green bush environment.
It is very rare to find such authenticity and purity in teachers such as Mandy & Robert. I am so grateful to have been taught by them not only in the practice of yoga but all the other elements that make a yogi. Thank you for offerings your lives to this teaching and helping to heal this world
Never have been to such an amazing and peaceful venue with the most knowledgeable and kind instructors. Thank you for introducing me to this beautiful form of self love.
Sincere heartfelt gratitude to Mandy, Robert, and your beautiful family and friends for such a blissful weekend; words don't seem to do it justice.
The Easter Vigil Retreat was precisely what I needed at precisely the right moment. What an awesome effort for your first full retreat. And the food was mouth-wateringly delicious each and every love-filled meal!
I would highly recommend this to anyone seeking to soothe the soul, tune in to nature, self, and a joyful community that feels like home... Namaste
I would like to express my gratitude to you both for been able to be part of your Easter Program and your hospitality. I thought it was just simply beautiful and inspiring. I was inspired by the food which you made. My journey over my stay was extremely nourishing and I felt so safe and secure.
Thank you both for your warm generosity and not only organising an inspiring program but also opening up your home and sharing Easter with me. Thank you for being so inspiring and sharing the beautiful practices.
As I have said before when I am going to spend a day at kookaburra I always feel as if I am coming home to a safe and beautiful space
Thank you Robert and Mandy for a beautiful 'Stillness' day. I thoroughly enjoyed every aspect of the day's activities. My favourite was probably the meditation in nature. Not to mention the vegan lunch - & this is from someone who generally doesn't like vegetables!!! If you could share your recipe for what I think was the dal dish, I'd be eternally grateful. I will definitely be joining one of your yoga classes soon. Thanks again x
Such a beautiful, tranquil location. Mandy & Robert have created the ultimate space to relax, rejuvenate and nourish the body, mind & soul. A newly renovated carriage was the perfect sanctuary to get away from the rat race without heading too far away. Their amazing yoga & meditation sessions were the medicine I didn't even know I needed! Highly recommend this nurturing oasis.
My first time to Kookaburra creek yoga for the Sound Silence Stillness yoga and meditation retreat. It was amazing! I've done yoga for a long time but have never been taught meditation before, and wanted to start learning and this day was perfect. The sound healing session was amazing, and the day also includes a lovely morning tea and lunch, in beautiful tranquil surroundings. I can't wait to go back!
Thank you for creating the space for light workers to come together to rejuvenate. Many thanks. Namaste.
This is one of best places in WA for a very relaxing and healing yoga session. The views from the windows feels like Mother Nature giving us a hug.
It was amazing. Exactly what we needed the train carriage was so homely and welcoming. To all the natural organic chemical free sprays and soaps to getting fresh eggs from Robert too. Having the yoga studio right at our door step was great too. I recommend this stay to anyone who is in need of some healing time in nature. It was so calm and peaceful x
This is an amazing place. Fabulous welcome. Really see out in the country Australia. The carriage is fantastic and very cosy.

We had a wonderful weekend at Mandy's accommodation. Quiet and peaceful surroundings, the place was very clean and well equipped. We enjoyed a delicious dinner and breakfast prepared by the host. Fantastic accommodation location for a short getaway. We would highly recommend this place and hope to be back there someday ourselves.
2016: the year in your words
2016 was an incredible year. This year 1150 people joined us at Kookaburra. We conducted 800 yoga and meditation classes; hosted 7 one day retreats; 5 workshops; a World Meditation Day event; 20 five week beginners yoga and meditation courses; a long weekend Yoga & Hiking Retreat; and our 2 Week Journey to the Source Pilgrimmage to the source of the Ganges River in the Himalayas. Thank you for being part of this wonderful community.
Thank you for such a peaceful and rejuvenating day on the silent retreat day in August. It was just what my soul needed. You both spoke so elequently and created such a beautiful space that it was joy to just simply be. One forgets to just breathe but it's so important and I'd forgotten that. LOVED the yoga part! Haven't done yoga for years and boy did I feel it but gentle guidance helped, so thank you. Hoping to do the beginner yoga course in November.
Thank you Mandy and Robert for most rewarding, healing and relaxing day. You provided both physical and spiritual retreat of such high quality that I have never experienced before. Your provision of delicious lunch and morning tea topped the cake.
I love this place! It is a perfect venue for yoga - turning off the highway and heading down the rural road starts the process. When time you reach the centre itself, you are already calmer. The building is glorious and perfectly designed for yoga. All teachers I have had are excellent, from kids to advanced classes. Surprisingly affordable and yogic in it's business model. Highly recommended.
Amazing energy , Awesome place, Nostalgic memories.
Thank you so much for organising the retreat and hiking weekend in the Porongorups. It was great to get out of life's groove and mix with like-minded people. I have wanted to climb Bluff Knoll for a long time and it was good to have finally done it! I really enjoyed the yoga sessions and Raje and Scott's music in the evenings was a beautiful way to end each evening.
This was my first time going on a yoga retreat and I am glad the first experience was with Kookaburra Creek! From the time of booking through to the final farewell in the last day it has been as I needed. The combination and choices of activity was well selected. The location was absolutely beautiful and being off-grid allowed all of us to connect with one another instead of being chained to technology. I've been practicing yoga on and off for a few years but I've never experience a more peaceful space and gentle guidance.I am looking forward to attending future retreats.
Loved my time with you guys. Def a pivotal time in my life and the carriage was the perfect place. I miss the kookaburras giving voice early morn and late evening. The peace and quiet and time for contemplation. Good luck with your AirB&B plans. Love to all.
So relaxed after meditation I could hardly roll up my yoga mat! Kookaburra Creek is just THE loveliest place to practice Yoga and Meditation. Thank you both for your commitment to the practices and for creating such a beautiful space for us all to enjoy while we learn and grow.
The only time I'm not in constant pain is after my Yoga at Kookaburra. Looking forward to continuing on for a very long time after my beginners course ends!
I have been going to Kookaburra Yoga on and off for years. Am just doing a refresher on Yoga and Relax and its wonderful. Thank you Mandy
Relaxing and blissful one day retreat. Thank you
My first time ever at a Yoga class! The whole experience left me feeling at one with nature and at peace with myself. From the moment we arrived and were greeted with a warm welcome, I felt at ease and ready to embrace "The now" I have discovered a new love!
I think I found my little piece of heaven just 10 mins away from home! I can't believe it! Mandy was great and so welcoming on my first session. I'll definitely be back and hopefully drag the husband along!!!
Having intended to venture to Kookaburra for some time I finally made it for a day long retreat...WOW! what an amazing shala with equally inspirational teachers. Keep this place+events on you radar they are a soul nourishing tribe.
I love this yoga centre. Beautiful bush setting, authentic teachings, and the yoga room has a lovely energy. The teachers share their knowledge openly and are an inspiration. They have learnt from the best. I just wish they were not so far from Freo.
Beautiful enviroment and positive vibes, great energy, uplifting the room & helpful tips will be back again
A great start to the weekend - Saturday morning yoga :)
