About Kate Wallace
Kate and Robert both grew up in Sydney but have lived in the Blue Mountains and the nearby area most of the time since the 1980s. We love it here and think the Blue Mountains are one of the world's really special places. We have both lived elsewhere, on a small holding in the south of New Zealand and on Bruny Island in Tasmania but we have returned to the mountains because we feel this is the best place to be.
Kate Wallace purchased this house in 2015
Why Kate Wallace chose Katoomba
We chose Kookaburra Cottage because it is a lovely house in a perfect position close to Echo Point but peaceful and with a delightful aspect. It has the feel of a 1950s comfortable family home with room to relax and beautiful picture windows which capture the view across the escarpment. It is a very well built house, warm in winter and cool in summer, facing north east, the sunniest and most cheerful aspect. The enclosed and private back garden is a special delight.
What makes this house unique
Many people remember family holidays in the Blue Mountains with affection and nostalgia and we want to transport them back to a time when life was simpler and less hurried. Kookaburra Cottage is the sort of house where you can spend a week or two if you wish and feel relaxed and at home. Our guests often comment that they haven't felt so peaceful for many years.
