What is an eco village l.jpg
What is an Eco-Village

  • An Eco-Village is a form of Sustainable Development.

  • Thus owners retain their individualism by owning their freehold lot as well as belonging to a community of like minded people.

What does Kookaburra Parklook like?

  • Kookaburra Park is made up of 124 freehold lots set on 485 acres of interesting subtropical bushland.

  • That leaves approximately 360 acres of common land for the enjoyment of all lot holders.

  • The common land includes lakes, roads, open grassland and forested bushland.

How is the common land managed l.jpg
How is the common land managed?

  • To formalise the ownership of the common land Kookaburra Park utilises the Body Corporate and Community Management Act 1997 Qld.

  • This Act determines how the common land is managed.

  • Every lot owner pays a levy each year to maintain and improve the common land.

  • At present the levy is $230.00 per lot per year.

  • This levy is used to slash the common land along the road sides, maintain the water system, for rubbish collection, recycling and to see to minor repairs.

  • Money is also put aside each year to pay for major spending in the future on things like resurfacing of the roads and improvement projects such as new playgrounds.

  • The local Council also charges its minimum rate of $320.00 p/a.

    • It eases the concerns of the neighbours on either side of the Park that dogs will not gather in packs and harass their cattle.
