Faultless. Ours was the first same sex wedding on KOOKABURRA,.The event coordinator, Natasha, was of great help. The boat was decked out in all its finery, including three rainbow flags flying proudly. The food was great, drinks package even more so. The wait staff were so friendly and supportive. If we ever had another wedding!!! Then we would charter KQ again.

Kookaburra Queen I was the perfect location for both ceremony and reception. Originally on other boat, we switched venues at the last minute due to predicted bad weather. The staff were efficient and everything was absolutely perfect. Stunning location, excellent food and friendly staff provided an unforgettable day.

These guys were great. Very reasonable rates and they were very professional. They were able to help sort all the details, had contacts for all the necessary suppliers and made everything really easy for us. During the night the service was exceptional, they catered to our every need and always seemed almost to happy to help. We were very impressed and would recommend this to everyone. I'm planning on using these guys again for upcoming parties. Very Happy.
