Set in the hills on the southern side of Mt Wheeler. Road access via two-wheel drive and only 30 minutes from Rockhampton.

One Hectare of land forms Cockscomb Veterans Bush Retreat. Had it not been for Bruce Acutt and his dedication it would not exist. Cockscomb has been on the go since July 1997, built by Veterans for Veterans.  Don’t think that because you haven’t had any input into the construction that you don’t have a place in the Cockscomb community.
